The requirements to be a junior firefighter are as follows:

1.    Junior firefighters should live in Hardin County. Applicants outside Hardin County will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

2.    Junior firefighters must be at least 14 years old but not older than 18 years old.

3.    Juniors should be willing and able to attend at least 50% of scheduled meetings and required training. Special trainings are optional but highly encouraged.

4.    Junior firefighters are encouraged to be self-starters and have a willingness to learn. Juniors who regularly strive to learn more and be involved will be rewarded with increasing levels of opportunities.

5.    The fire department is proud of its members; junior members are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner when representing the fire department.

  1. Juniors must be active in school in order to remain part of this program.
  2. If the junior member begins to have a decrease in grades, gets placed in suspension, is sent to alternative school, or completely drops out of school we are to be notified immediately. We will take actions accordingly. This is to ensure that your child raises his or her grades to the desired level, or the junior may be terminated from the program.

The Junior Firefighters meet once every month. It will be the second Saturday of each month starting at 10AM until 12PM. SCHOOL COMES FIRST, ALWAYS!
