Are you interested in a career as a first responder after high school?

If so, this program is for you! We are looking for high school students 15-18 years of age that are interested in the Fire, EMS or Dispatch fields. The program meets on the 1st and 4th Tuesday of each month at Tazewell County Fire Department. The classes are paramilitary in nature due to the job. We will provide basic Firefighter, EMS training with the opportunity to observe 911 dispatchers at work.

If you feel this is for you, please call (276) 322-2023 for more information.

We believe that home grown first responders benefit the community as well as the young adults in the program!
