Protection District is the sponsor of Fire Explorer Post 977 and
chartered with the Boy Scouts of America.
The Vacaville Junior Fire Department was established back in
1959 for young adults to be given the training and guidance needed
to learn the required skills for a firefighting career. This
insight will allow an individual to decide whether or not he or
she desires to pursue a greater role in the fire service. Over the
years, we have seen many junior firefighters become senior
firefighters and fire officers within the fire district.
Juniors Firefighters assist with all routine tasks in the
community and around the fire station, including community
relations, fire prevention, equipment and station maintenance, and
training. Juniors Firefighters are issued wildland grass gear
which consist of pants, shirt, helmet, goggles, and gloves.
