Junior Firefighter Program


The Barkhamsted Fire District and its three fire departments have supported a Junior Firefighter program for many years.  Some of our junior members have gone on to become chiefs.

Junior members must be at least 14 years of age and have parental permission to participate.

Junior members work alongside the men and women of the fire departments at emergency scenes, training sessions, fund raisers and other activities.

It is a great way to learn about an exciting career.

Junior members are expected to put their school work first and there is no pressure as a junior member to make a certain number of responses or training sessions.

For more specific details on the program and the policies we have, click BFD- Juniors Policy 11-11-10.pdf.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a member can come by anytime and check it out.  You do not have to apply until you are ready.  All departments meet on Tuesday evenings at 7 pm.
