Junior firefighters may join at age 14, with some restrictions on their hours and activities.
Membership applications are read by a membership committee and then reviewed twice at two monthly business meetings. After the applicant is interviewed by the membership committee, the membership votes on receiving the new member. If approved, he or she begins a six-month probationary period. Unless cause is found to extend the probationary period, he or she becomes a full member the end of that time.
