WODEN VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT JR FIREFIGHTERS OPERATING GUIDELINES

  • Junior Firefighters must be at least 12 years of age to join and can participate until 18 years of age.
  • Junior Firefighters should maintain at least a "C" average in their school coursework. The Woden Fire Department, through cooperation with the Woden ISD, will monitor this on a quarterly basis. If parents ask up to limit participation at higher averages, their word will always be the last in these cases. In the event a Junior Firefighter has lower than a "C" average, said member will be place on probation until the grade returns to at least a "C" average. Members place on probation will not be allowed to participate in any activities outside meetings unless agreed upon by the Woden VFD, Woden ISD, and the legal guardian of the member.
  • Junior Firefighters must always obtain permission from their legal guardian to participate in our program.
  • Junior Firefighters should always report to their adviser, or the adviser's designee, for all assignments and activities.
