Randy Eardley Biography

I began my fire career in 1974 as a member of a fire crew. Between 1974 and 1985 I held a variety of positions within the fire program, including as a fire crew member, wildland fire engine driver, operator of a fire lookout, manager of a remote fire guard station, and in fire aviation as an Air Tactical Group Supervisor. Having left for 6 years to work as a journalist, I returned to fire aviation and my work in the airplane in 1991.

Beginning in 1992, I was able to combine my fire experience and journalism in a role as lead fire information and education specialist and spokesman/media specialist for the Lower Snake River District BLM. I currently manage the fire information, prevention and education programs for the BLM in southwest Idaho. I am also a member and team leader for the National Wildland Fire Prevention and Education Teams and I've been involved in projects with the team in Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Idaho.
