Young Firefighters Association (YFA)

The Young Firefighters Association (YFA) is a uniformed youth organisation which is run by volunteers. There are two YFA units, one in Droitwich the other in Redditch.

When the Young Firefighters first join, they are put though a 13-week basic training course. After this they take part in a passing out parade. This is a chance to show the skills that they have learnt to friends, family, local dignitaries and senior Fire Service officers. At their passing out parade, the Young Firefighters, who are aged between 13 and 17, are awarded their passing out certificate. From then onwards they are trained in greater detail in preparation for more complex drills. The YFA members also attend an annual camp and take part in other leisure activities.
