Future Firefighter Program Overview

Each year, Lesser Slave Regional Fire Service mentors and trains a small group of capable and energetic teenagers for potential careers as firefighters, EMTs, police officers or forestry officers. There is a limited number of spaces due to the nature of activities and the supervision required.

During the program, youth take part in activities including hazard reduction burning, vehicle extrication, air tanker operations, wildfire operations, policing, and emergency medical services.
