You didnt think to ask when they offered it to you?

I would think it would just be working like an EFF when its too busy for there normal crews to handle they will call you in. I could be wrong tho

I've worked for the fire program almost 8 years now and never heard that term used. I assume it was someone meaning it like the old "EFF" system. What they do is put you on a list and if things get so busy they can't handle the workload with local and regional crews they'd call you in, train you up, and you'd get attached to a crew until they didn't need you anymore.

I guess I thought it was a more commonly used term..

I was told i would be given training and one month of employment; and then depending on how the season goes i would be kept for the season or not. I was more just wondering if anyone had any experiences with that.
