Protection ranger positions available in Smokies

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is seeking candidates for three permanent, full-time protection ranger positions – one each in the Cades Cove, Cosby, and Cataloochee areas.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park rangers participate in the full spectrum of frontcountry and backcountry emergency services operations, including law enforcement, SAR, EMS and wildland fire. Each of these areas offers unique opportunities to develop and maintain a broad set of traditional ranger skills. There may be opportunities for advanced training, including participation in the FTEP program.

Candidates who possess a type I or type II NPS law enforcement commission are eligible to apply.
