Roundtable Talk: Engaging Youth in the Fire Service

When:  Feb 21, 2024 from 02:00 PM to 03:00 PM (ET)

Junior firefighter programs give youth the chance to learn about local fire, rescue, and emergency medical services response organizations in a safe, controlled, educational, and fun way, while providing departments with nonoperational support and a powerful recruitment mechanism. How can departments engage with local youth, schools, and other organizations to promote these youth fire service programs? What do departments need to do to ensure these programs provide sound training and leadership experiences for youth? Join us for a conversation with Quentin Cash, Jerry Presta, Ellen Yarborough, and the NVFC's Rachel Buczynski regarding best practices and strategies for building a strong youth program in your community.
