NOW RECRUITING: Emergency Roadside Assistance Volunteers

Mount Rainier National Park is looking for some amazing volunteers to provide Emergency Roadside Assistance during the summer around the Paradise area.  These dedicated volunteers would assist with jump-starting dead batteries, changing flat tires, aiding in vehicle lockouts (with tools and training provided), and assisting park Rangers with traffic control, among many other things. 

Bonus points if you have previous law enforcement experience or similar experiences with assisting people in potentially challenging circumstances. 

Perks of this position include park housing available for those who volunteer 32 or more hours per week, either in historic cabins or an RV pad with hookups in the Longmire Stewardship Campground, as well as a uniform and government vehicle provided and a waiver of park entrance fees.  Not to mention you'd play a crucial role in making experiences for park goers unforgettable. 

Last year, the two RAVEN volunteers assisted with over 30 dead batteries, 32 locked doors, and over 15 flat tires, all while having meaningful contacts with over 2,500 park visitors. 

More information can be found here, with a link to apply!  If you have any questions about the position, please direct them to Chief Ranger Curt Dimmick at
