The mission of the Derrick City Volunteer Junior Firefighter Program is to maintain a safe environment for the youth of our community, to gather for learning many aspects of the fire service as well as provide avenues for social interaction.

     To build each junior up to their potential by focusing on leadership, character, team work and the community while providing an active and enjoyable program for our members, their family, and the youth of Foster Township.

Derrick City VFD Junior Fire Department

The DCVFD Junior Program was started in 2016 with 3 new junior members. The Junior Firefighter Program grants members 14-17 the opportunity to learn firefighting and EMS skills in a safe and structured environment. Junior firefighters build strong bonds with peers while working together to meet common goals within the program as well as the community. The program is organized and facilitated by active members of the DCVFD. They lead, guide and teach the juniors throughout the program in various areas.

    Although parents/guardians are not required to volunteer their time to the program, we love to get our member’s family involved. These volunteers are instrumental in the success of the program and because our members love to share their junior firefighter experiences with their families, the DCVFD junior program offers many ways for family members to get involved. Parents/Guardians may choose to become members of the DCVFD either by becoming active or becoming a social member. If neither sounds interesting, they can just help at various fundraisers when needed!
