Made up of aspiring firefighters aged 14 – 17, our Junior Program is a great way to start your firefighting career. This opportunity gives you the chance to learn from experienced firefighters – many of whom are employed by cities around the state to do just that – fight fires. It’s a great way to meet a great group of people, establish professional and casual relationships, and put you on track to one of the most coveted jobs in the world – Firefighter.

If you’re interested in getting your son or daughter involved in our Junior Program, please contact Firefighter Aaron Lanthier (Junior Program Advisor) at lanthieralhs@hotmail.com with any questions or concerns you may have.
