Future Firefighter Program

Mentoring and training capable and energetic teenagers for potential careers as firefighters.

Each year LSRFS mentors and trains a small group of capable and energetic teenagers for potential careers as firefighters, EMTs, police, or forestry officers. The program is designed for youth between the ages of 14 to 17 years. 

There will be two classes this year. July 24-28 and August 21-25. Times will be 9am till 4pm at the fire hall in Slave Lake. This year we will provide lunch during the week.

There is a limited number of spaces due to the nature of the activities and the supervision required.

This program involves a number of different agencies including Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, RCMP, Alberta Health Services, and LSRFS, who introduce the group to the different aspects of their organization’s scope of responsibilities in emergency response and management. Youth take part in tons of activities, such as hazard reduction burning, vehicle extrication, air tanker operations, wildfire operations, policing, and emergency medical services.
