Bridgton Fire Department Junior Firefighter Program
Junior Firefighters perform an important support role for the Bridgton Fire Department during emergency responses. Junior Firefighters actively assist response efforts by setting up exterior hose lines, assisting water supply operations, gathering equipment, tools and more!
Junior Firefighters train once per week as a unit. These trainings often mirror regular department trainings with a focus on what Junior Firefighters can do on the emergency scene. Most of these trainings are active hands on trainings allowing Junior Firefighters an opportunity to train in the use of firefighting equipment in a safe low stress atmosphere. Junior Firefighters are also encouraged to attend regular fire department trainings and meetings.
