Lake Dalecarlia Volunteer Fire Department
Junior Firefighters

 

The LDFD Junior Firefighter program is a once a year 6-week program for kids age 5 - 17

held on Saturdays for 2 hours (9am - 11am). All kids receive a T-shirt, Frisbee and certificate of completion. Topics covered include fire safety, fire extinguishers, stop, drop and roll, escape plans, smoke and CO detectors, fire streams, smoke house and how to properly use 9-1-1. They also receive demos from the Paramedics about EMS. They learn about how the fire trucks operate, dispatching and arson dogs. They will learn about SCBAs and various other firefighting tools. In addition, 12-17 yr olds learn CPR and become certified. The program is designed to be fun for all ages--even parents, grandparents, and anyone else who has questions on the fire/ems service.
