Bath: Junior firefighters wanted

The Bath Volunteer Fire Department is seeking teens, ages 14-17, for its Junior Volunteer Firefighter Program. The program is designed for teenagers to learn about the interesting world of a firefighter. Every Tuesday at the Bath Fire Station, senior firefighters, and juniors as well, gather for drills and meetings, and juniors have specific meetings the first and third Thursday each month.
Through this program, no junior will be put in harm’s way or do anything that may cause serious injury or death; our goal is to attract young people interested in firefighting.
Interested students may visit the Bath Fire Station at 50 East Morris Street any Tuesday evening after 6pm. You could also contact a junior firefighter throughout school who will be happy to give you more information.

Be aware that firefighting is a professional endeavor, and we want respectful, mature teenagers willing to help others and volunteer to learn the skills of a true firefighter. Keep in mind that, if you do become a junior volunteer, wherever you go, you will be representing the Bath Fire Department.
