Back to School - Back to Community
It's that time of year for kids to go back to school but you don't have to be a kid to get educated. Anyone from teenagers to older adults can learn the skills needed to help save a life and protect property within your community simply by becoming a Volunteer Firefighter. You may have been looking for a way to be involved in your community but didn't know where to go, well why not get involved in your local fire department. It is an exciting way to meet new people, work with those in your community, learn valualbe skills, and help your neighbors in their time of need. We accept new members with experience and without experience. Those with experience and certifications can work part-time shifts and also help to mold the next generation of upcoming firefighters. We also have a Junior Firefighter program for high school kids 16-18 years of age. Have questions? Of course you do, so come on by the Fire Station and talk to one of our great firefighters. Get "Back in to your Community" and do something that is rewarding on so many levels. Flowes Store VFD, 8623 Flowes Store Road Concord NC 28025.

Junior Firefighter Program
Flowes Store Fire Department has a Junior Firefighter program for 16-18 year olds still enrolled in high school. The application process is the same as for a regular member with a little less required paperwork. This program is aimed at gaining the interest of younger people in the community and showing them the importance of helping in their community and also possibly spark an interest for a possible career in the Fire or EMS field.
Junior Firefighters can:
- train with department members
- begin work on certification classes
- ride along for emergency calls and assist in a limited capacity
- learn about careers in the Fire service or EMS field
Junior members are required to submit grades to the officer over Junior members and must maintain passing grades to remain active as a Junior member of the department. School comes first! If you would like to get some more information about the Junior Firefighter program or get an application you can stop by the fire station anytime from 8am-9pm.
