Junior Firefighter Program (16+)
The East Brunswick Independent Fire Company is a proud supporter of our own Junior member program. This program allows young members of our community to get firsthand experience in what it’s like to be a firefighter while aiding their neighbors and friends. Our department offers this in the form of our “Cadet Membership” opportunity.
Cadet Membership is offered to individuals 16 through 17 years of age who have an interest in learning about fire and emergency services, having fun and serving their community. The Fire/Rescue Cadet Program is designed to instill a sense of character, confidence, and self-esteem in each Cadet. The program also teaches fire/rescue skills, self-discipline, and respect. Cadets participate in formal training supplemented by field trips and developmental assignments related to fire prevention, control, and emergency medical services. Parental permission is required for participation.
