Thread: Age Requirements

I was just wondering what the age requirements for a volunteer firefighter in Indiana? I am 16 yrs. old and would like to start firefighting, but fear I am too young. Any help?

I'm not sure about Indiana but in Minnesota the age is 18, however several departments have a junior firefighter program where you can start and train with the department and then you are voted in or can apply when you turn 18 to become an active member. If you have a department in mind I would call them up or stop in and ask them. If they are a small department hurting for members they may be able to work something out. Good luck and be safe!
