Hotshots bring a high level of fitness and expertise to wildfire management. The Forest Service and its interagency partners employ hotshot crews to help manage complex wildfires.

Hotshots meet stringent qualifications and work in some of the roughest and most remote terrain in the nation. They are highly mobile and trained to be self-sufficient with their own vehicles, gear, and specialized firefighting tools.

Their experience and training qualifies them to conduct complex firing operations.
