Ex-combat medic new ranger at Humboldt-Toiyabe NF

Updated:

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service's new deputy district ranger on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest is a former combat medic in the Army National Guard who has worked on national forests in Arizona, New Mexico and Alaska.

Matt Boisseau is in charge of the Ruby Mountains and Jarbidge ranger districts based in Wells about 50 miles east of Elko.

Forest supervisor Bill Dunkleberger says his expertise in natural resource planning and management in both the private and public sector make him a great fit for the numerous forest programs in Elko County.

Boisseau says he's looking forward to working with local residents who have great passion for the national forest in their backyard. He most recently worked as a recreation resource specialist in Prescott, Ariz. He was a combat medic from 1988-99.
