Answer the call to help. Fight fires. Perform rescues. Climb ladders. Carry hoses. Operate firetrucks and other equipment. Help with accidents and hazardous materials (HAZMAT) situations. Save lives and property. We offer training, both at the academy and the firehouse. Know that what you do matters to your community.
Teenagers between 16 and 18 can learn how to fight fires. We provide the gear and training. While you can’t run into burning buildings, you can help with hoses and equipment to assist firefighters during fire calls. Volunteering with Clifton Heights brings a strong sense of satisfaction and is also great for your college resume.
Cadets are between 14 to 16 years old. Like Junior Firefighters, cadets are firefighters in training. And along with Junior Firefighters, the cadets learn how to eventually become an Active Firefighter. The jobs and responsibilities for cadets increase with experience and training. Volunteer as a cadet for fun and an experience like no other.
The primary duty of the fire police is to ensure the safety of firefighters going to and from the fire scene. The fire police direct traffic at the scene and provide security and crowd control.
Not everyone needs to run into a burning building to make a difference. Help the fire company with needed paperwork, plan fundraisers or serve on the board of trustees. There is a lot you can do to help the Clifton Heights Fire Company!
