The Position

Incumbents possess a degree of knowledge and proficiency sufficient to perform work independently with little or no additional training. Conservation Crew Supervisors supervise crews of Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC) inmates and/or Nevada Division of Forestry (NDF) staff, maintain security, and provide training in equipment use and safety in completing projects in resource conservation and/or fire management. Incumbents receive training in performing all or part of the duties outlined in the series concept and in specialized areas in either Natural Resource or Fire Suppression. This is the trainee level in the series and progression to the next level in the series may occur upon meeting minimum qualifications, satisfactory performance, and with the approval of the appointing authority. This position is for a Conservation Crew Supervisor - Option B (Fire Suppression) and will be enrolled into the Police/Fire retirement in PERS and will be covered under the Heart and Lung bill once eligible. The Division of Forestry has a unique partnership with the Department of Corrections to train and provide labor skills in natural resource and wildland fire management to minimum security inmates to help rehabilitate and reduce return rates. Under the supervision of the Conservation Camp Supervisor, this position supervises and directs up to 12 inmate crew members on natural resource conservation projects and wildland fire suppression incidents. Conservation projects can include, but are not limited to, timber stand improvement, timber harvest, insect and disease abatement, vegetative fuels reduction, tree planting, reclamation of wildfire damaged lands, riparian enhancement, watershed and range improvement, wildlife habitat enhancement, park maintenance, prescribed fire fuel reduction projects, and application of herbicide and pesticide for noxious weed and insect control.
Wildland Fire response can be required in and out of state for durations up to 21 days. NWCG qualifications are required to be obtained and/or maintained for the duration of employment commensurate with the level of Crew Supervisor filled. Conservation Crew Supervisors supervise and evaluate crew member skill levels; plan, assign and review work; brief crew regarding work requirements and processes, job hazards and safety standards; direct projects to ensure timely completion and production rates are met; identify problems and take corrective action; and ensure the custody and security of crew members. Crew supervisors also compile data and prepare records and reports related to project outcomes and accomplishments; equipment usage, maintenance, and repair; and crew member evaluations, training and cohesion. The selected applicant must pass the arduous pack test that consists of a three (3) mile walk, carrying a forty-five (45) pound pack within forty-five (45) minutes, as well as, a pre-hire drug screening and background check.
