Every summer, starting in 2010, FD9 has hosted a summer camp for the youth in our district. The FD9 Volunteers as well as full-time firefighters staff the camp. The camp lasts for 3 days normally the 3rd week of June. Our campers learn first-aid, fire safety and participate in all sorts of fun activities including water day on the last day of camp. A graduation dinner is held the last night of camp for campers and their families. Our camp has grown to over 100 participants and gets bigger & better every year.
Our volunteer organization is comprised of both Payed-on-Call and Career members. All members are trained in both firefighting and medical skills. We are also involved in fund raisers to support our activities as well as helping our community. If you would like to become a volunteer download our application, fill it out and stop by Station 93 at 80581 Hwy 21 in Bush, so we can get the process started. Our monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7pm at Station 93. All are welcome to attend.
The Youth Fire Corps program is designed to teach many things including leadership, decision making, command and control, and more. Members are also instructed in many hands-on evolutions such as firefighting and first-aid. If you are interested in hard work and learning while having fun, we may be just what you're looking for.
