Junior Firefighter’s Mission
As a Junior Firefighter, I will, work to gain as much knowledge as I can through training provided to me by the Dighton Junior Firefighters Association and the Dighton Fire Department, I possibly can. With this knowledge, I will be able to serve my community to the best of my ability. Also, through my experiences I will gain respect for the men and women who put their lives on the line everyday in the fire service.
