Rowville Juniors

Junior Brigade Update #1

Whilst everyone is aware that the Rowville Fire Brigade has a membership that attends emergency situations, not everyone is aware that there is also a Junior Membership.

Juniors consist of kids between the ages of 11 and 16. The Rowville Junior Fire Brigade has a very similar setup as the senior brigade, in that it has a captain, lieutenant and secretary.

One of the juniors’ responsibilities is to help with fundraising. For the past two years we have been raising money for the Kmart wishing tree. Last year we raised $180 and bought presents for a family of four.

The Rowville Juniors are not the only junior brigade around. There are many more around the state and most of us come together in February for the Junior Fire Brigade State Championships. This is a competition involving Wet and Dry hose drills, all performed against the clock and other brigades.

We trained for over five months last year and this year for the State Championships and other competitions. We give up our school holidays to train and our weekends to do these competitions leading up to state.

The summer comps run from December through to March, and then we compete in winter comps from May to September against The Basin Junior Fire Brigade
