The JLBC Cadet Corps Firefighting program

The JLBC Cadet Corps Firefighting program is a highly structured and well-thought-out initiative designed to provide a framework for educating and recruiting young potential firefighters. This is aimed at replenishing the pool of active firefighters and providing valuable training and knowledge for the youth who engage with the program.

This program also considers the potential risks and liabilities involved in involving minors in the fire service and their protection. By aligning with child labor laws and ensuring that the training doesn't endanger or overwork the cadets, the program strikes a balance between offering a beneficial experience and maintaining safety and legal compliance.

The JLBC Cadet Corps Program uses additional resources, such as the Department of Labor (DOL) Guidance Letter on Cadet Firefighter Programs, to ensure all areas are covered and provide further information and direction to those involved. The ultimate goal is to ensure that volunteer fire departments remain safe, educational and effectively serve their communities.
