Coventry Volunteer Fire Association has an active Junior Firefighter program. Teenagers 14 to 17 years participate in training, emergency calls, public education and much more as a junior member. The members are certified in CPR and as an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR)  which teaches basic medical care. After successful completion junior members respond as a member of the ambulance crew and assist in providing medical care to injured and sick residents. Junior members also provide an important role on fire scenes assisting with rehab of firefighters and keeping equipment easily accessible for the firefighters. 


Junior members also participate in community, fundraising, and charitable events, which have included raising money for the Connecticut Fallen Firefighter Memorial, Special Olympics, and the Coventry Food Bank

 

The fire service offers several awards and scholarships on both an individual and department-wide basis. CVFA is proud of its three former junior members who received national recognition as part of the junior program.
