Do you know what all

Do you know what all of these members have in common? They all started as junior firefighters.

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.

Some benefits of being a junior firefighter include:
🚒 Allowing youth to gain insight and interest in becoming long-term members of the emergency services
🚒 Increasing awareness among youth about volunteering and supporting the fire and emergency services
🚒 Providing departments with additional help in accomplishing non-firefighting or non-emergency tasks
🚒 Leadership development for America's youth, who are tomorrow's leaders
🚒 Educating parents and mentors on the importance of encouraging volunteerism

TVFC accepts applications for individuals age 16 and older. Do you have a teenager that is looking for a way to give to the community in a unique way?
