There's a rumor going around Virginia that there may be a movement at the state or federal level to ban anyone under the age of 18yrs. from firefighting. My dept. is preparing to begin a new high school cadet program and this (if true) would have a serious impact. I am wondering if anyone else has news on this, particularly if it is federal legislation. Maybe this is just talk in conjunction with the unfortunate death of the 14yr. in PA.....?
