The Vacaville 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.
