The Tulia Volunteer Fire Department (TVFD) is launching a new junior fire fighter program to help promote awareness about the importance of volunteers in fire departments throughout rural communities. Any students in grades 9-12 are eligible to apply to be a part of this initiative, with the department planning to have up to 6 students in the program.

These junior fire fighters will become active members of the department participating in training drills, attending regular meetings and community events, while being able to see fire fighters in action during real fire calls by acting in a support capacity on the fire trucks. The students will be required to maintain their grades in school and will be eligible to receive scholarships toward higher education after graduation. The program will also encourage tutoring for those students needing a little extra help getting their grades up.

“The department is very excited about the future of this new program. Emergency services is a calling which is hard to walk away from once you get involved. We hope when students learn about volunteer fire fighters they will be committed long-term, which will help not only our department, but state-wide if they move and continue serving in other communities,” said Fire Chief Johnny Daniels about the program.

The TVFD is hosting a meeting on Sunday, June 22nd at 3PM to present the program in more detail to anyone interested in applying. Students and their parents are encouraged to attend to learn more about how they can participate. The meeting will be held at the Tulia Fire Station located at 203 N. Maxwell.
