      The California Dept. of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) serves and
      safeguards the people of California and protects the property and resources
      of the state. CAL FIRE, based in Morgan Hill, seeks a GIS intern to assist
      with data gathering, data creation, map production, and data analysis
      efforts. The internship, though unpaid, would offer valuable experience
      and great resume-building potential while serving the community and
      applying solid GIS skills to meaningful work. The dates and times for the
      position can be highly flexible to support the intern�s availability and
      still accommodate the needs of CAL FIRE. ****

      The intern, working in the Morgan Hill Emergency Command Center (ECC),
      would be supervised by the ECC Battalion Chief and the on-site
      Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) Administrator. The primary task would be to
      collect current geospatial data sets from the communities served by CAL
      FIRE and its cooperators including The South Santa Clara County Fire
      District, City of Morgan Hill, all other areas of Santa Clara County,
      Alameda County, Contra Costa County, and western Stanislaus and western
      San Joaquin counties. These data sets would include roads, parcels,
      ownership data, fire hydrant locations and orhtophotography, protection
      boundaries for fire, law enforcement, parks and recreation. Besides
      organizing the data efficiently in a geodatabase, the intern is also
      responsible for editing existing data sets and producing maps upon request.
      The Dispatch Center has one workstation with ArcGIS 10 installed.****

      Ideally, the intern would assist the District for approximately 20 hours
      per week through the end of 2013.****
