Young Firefighters Association

Please note that recruitment for the Young Firefighters Scheme at Ringwood is now closed. If you would like more information about the Young Firefighters Scheme please contact yfa@hantsfire.gov.uk.

The objective of the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Young Firefighters Association is the formation and maintenance of a uniformed Youth Organisation closely associated with the Fire Service within the Hampshire Area.

The aims of the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Young Firefighters Association are:

It is the principle of the YFA that membership should be offered to young people who might not normally have the opportunity to join a uniformed youth organisation.

It is therefore appropriate that application for membership is encouraged from members of ethnic minority communities and young people with physical disabilities or learning difficulties.

There are currently two branches of the YFA running within Hampshire. These are at Ringwood and Basingstoke.
