    The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) Junior firefighter programs give young people the chance to learn about local fire, rescue, and emergency medical services response organizations in a safe, controlled, educational, and fun way while providing departments with an excellent recruitment mechanism. Young people can use the National Junior Firefighter Program to find a local program, learn what it means to be a junior firefighter, and log their hours of service to receive special recognition and incentives as they reach certain milestones.

    The Junior firefighter program is a very positive way for young people to spend their time, while preparing them for the fire service. If your interested in becoming a Junior Firefighter click the link below or go online to: http://nvfc.org/page/1030/Search_for_a_Program.htm
