The Community Volunteer Fire Department's Junior Firefighter Program is designed for youth, 13 – 18 years of age, who are interested in learning about a career in the fire service. This fun, hands-on program provides participants with opportunities to increase their self-confidence and develop leadership skills through fire service-related activities.

Junior Firefighters get to train with CVFD Firefighters and Instructors on topics which include, firefighting skills, hose handling evolutions, ladder techniques, salvage operations, proper use of firefighting tools and equipment, breathing apparatus, and other related subjects. Junior Firefighters also have the opportunity to participate in ride-along shifts where they can assist CVFD firefighters in station activities and participate on emergency incidents (on a limited basis).

The safety of our Junior Firefighters is of top priority.  Junior Firefighters may actively participate in real emergency situations under direct supervision of certified firefighters.  Junior Firefighters are NOT allowed to enter burning structures, toxic atmospheres, potential collapse zones, or other obviously dangerous locations on the fire ground, although they may assist on the perimeter and observe. Junior Firefighters will be issued BLUE helmets, to immediately distinguish them from regular firefighters.

Junior Firefighters must obtain parental consent to participate in this program. Parents are encouraged to visit our facilities and speak with the Junior FF Instructors.
