The Manhasset-Lakeville Junior Fire Department was established in 2016.
The program is open to any teen, 13-16 years old. The juniors meet once a month to learn about firefighting and emergency medical services. The juniors train just like regular firefighters and EMTs, just not to the same extent. We are also a member of the Nassau County Junior Firefighter's Association. There are other various dates where the junior firefighters attend department and county-wide functions as well as marching in parades. The juniors are given gear and a dress uniform. This program not only teaches skills and techniques about firefighting and EMS, but it also reinforces a positive environment and concentrates on responsibility, social interaction, and leadership. This program is a great way to get involved in your community and looks great for college and your resume.
After the junior member turns 17, he or she will become eligible and has the option to join 1 of the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department companies and/or join the Ambulance Unit.
