Youth Firefighter Program

New Westminster Youth Services and New Westminster Fire and Rescue Services have teamed up to offer interested youth the unique opportunity to experience a Fire Academy situation. Usually held in July, this condensed week includes first aid training, fire prevention, basic firefighting, auto extrication and other activities that firefighters experience on a regular basis.

The Youth Firefighter Program is open to students in Grades 10, 11 and 12 that have a desire to experience the regular duties of a New Westminster Firefighter.  Priority is given to residents of New Westminster.
