Brownsville Fire Company #1 has an established Junior Firefighter Program for members of our community from ages 14-18 who are interested.
The Junior Firefighter Program was launched with the aspirations of getting the young people in the surrounding area involved with their community by community by observation and some hands on work. Our goal is to prepare these young people to be the safest and well trained firefighters that they can be, for their sake of their sake of all the people living in the surrounding communities that these young people will be serving to protect. This Program is under the supervision and guidance of Brownsville Fire Co. No. 1.
