Meeeting & Drill for the Junior Members of the Hose Company.
The Junior members are a support division for the Chester Hose Company senior membership.
It consists of young men and women, ages 14-18 who respond to fire, and motor vehicle accident calls. They perform many fireground operations, such as getting tools off trucks, setting up water suplies, changing SCBA tanks, and many many other tasks. The Juniors also raise their own funds through the dunk tank during Chester Fair weekend, selling Soda at the Chili Cook-Off and through the sale of popcorn at various other events.
The Junior division is a vital asset to the company. It helps train the youth of Chester to be future firefighters. Anyone is welcome to stop by and pick up an application as new members are always being sought.
