you should really stop incarcerating your firefighters!

is this an "everyone is in until you get out" type deal or an "opt-in for reduced sentence" type deal?

They give low paying jobs to many inmates. Some are within the prison, but if you meet certain criteria in minimum security prisons you can be transferred to a specific prison that does work release programs like this during your sentence. It doesn't specifically reduce your sentence, but it certainly helps parole meetings showing you can be trusted and that you are building skills to reintegrate into society.

The firefighting job pays much better than other prison jobs - somewhere around $4.90/hour
