The fire service can be challenging, as well as rewarding. I believe that no matter how long you are a member (and I have been a member since 1968), you can never say, "I have seen it all!" While many alarms are routine, eventually you use your training and skills to cope with a situation that you have not encountered before.

Halesite Fire Department Launching Junior Firefighter Program

Monday, December 1, 2014

The Halesite Fire Department is pleased to announce that it is forming a Junior Firefighter Program. This program is intended to allow teenagers the opportunity to gain technical and life skills not otherwise available to them. Participants will develop and build teamwork, leadership, confidence, responsibility and the ability to stay calm in an emergency situation. These skills will be developed through training, drills, coaching, the example set by senior members, and other Department and program activities.

The program is open to children of Halesite Fire District residents ages 13 - 17, or 12 year olds in 7th Grade. Please click on the Juniors menu above for an overview of the program, By-Laws and an application for membership.

An informational meeting will take place for parents and children interested in learning more on Sunday, December 14th at the Halesite Firehouse. Those interested in attending can RSVP with Halesite by sending an e-mail to juniors@halesitefd.org or can sign-up during our annual Christmas Tree Sale (Dec. 5 - 6).

The Halesite Fire Department has a long tradition of Junior Firefighter programs. Over the years several of Halesite's Juniors have gone on to careers in firefighting and EMS. Although not required, Halesite's Juniors have chosen to become members in Halesite or in neighboring Departments once they turned 18. Several of Halesite's Juniors have gone on to become Chief of our Fire Department.
