“I have no ambition in this world but one,
and that is to be a fireman!
The position, in the eyes of some,
may appear to be a lowly one;
but we who know the work
which the fireman has to do
believe that this is a noble calling. ...
Above all, our proudest endeavor
is to save the lives of men
―the work of God Himself!
Under the impulse of such thoughts,
the nobility of the occupation thrills us
and stimulates us to deeds of daring,
even at the supreme sacrifice.
Such considerations may not strike the average mind,
but they are sufficient to fill to the limit our ambition in life
and to make us serve the general purpose of human society.”
―Chief Edward F. Croker, FDNY, 1910
Support the Warren County Junior Firefighters program with your donation.
The Warren County Junior Firefighters program is designed for youth to explore the fire service and emergency medical services as a possible career choice. The program is open to young men and women 14 to 20 years old.
The Warren County Junior Firefighters provides hands-on firefighting and emergency medical training by actual firefighters and EMS professionals so youth can become trained and learn useful career skills. Some members have even earned their NC Firefighter or Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certifications while still in high school!
Many alumni have become career firefighters, EMTs, or other public safety professionals. Most still volunteer as First Responders and Firefighters in their communities with their local fire departments.
