What are park rangers? Park rangers are the law enforcement officials of our national parks who aim to protect and preserve parklands and keep people safe from dangers within the park. In order to achieve this goal, park rangers work in a wide variety of positions, including education and interpretation for park visitors, emergency dispatch, firefighting, maintenance, law enforcement, search and rescue, and administration.
