Dear SHS Students,
The Stowe fire Department is looking for individuals between the ages of 16-18 that live in the town of Stowe to join our Junior Firefighter Program.

By participating you will become a representative of the Stowe Fire Department, and will learn many incredible values:
Acts of community service
Hands on skills
Individuals will get the opportunity to observe and experience hands on activities. The focus of the program will consist of learning about operation methods and techniques as they pertain to firefighting and help show interested individuals what being a firefighter is really like.
Program members will be allowed to participate in basic trainings and perform routine duties pertained to the fire equipment and fire apparatus. Junior fire department members will get the opportunity for community service hours in the town as they serve as a junior firefighter. Upon completion of Junior Program and graduation of Stowe high school, junior firefighters will get an opportunity for a fire department scholarship to use for their college education.
