About our program
Welcome to the Facebook page of the Little Axe Junior Firefighters program. Our program is designed to give students between the ages of 13 and 18 with interest in becoming a firefighter practical exposure various facets of firefighting life. In our program students are provided with training in protective equipment, fire suppression, and fire prevention. Students are also exposed to the ethics and traditions of the fire service. Students are mentored by active firefighters, both in a group and as needed in a one on one fashion. Our goal is to give our students the support they need to succeed not only in the fire service but in their every day lives. Students who join our program should expect to learn all about the fire service in a fast paced, exciting, fun environment. participants in this program should be willing and ready to reach for their full potential both physically and mentally. Students will gain hands on real world knowledge of what the fire service does. This is accomplished primarily by active participation in all aspects of the fire service.
