Are you 16 years of age (or have a child who is 16 years old) and looking for a well-established youth community service oriented program? The Bedford Hills Fire Department - Firefighter Candidate Program is always accepting applications from ambitious 16-year-old youths.

Since 2001, our Firefighter Candidate program has introduced well over 50 local youths to the Fire Service in a safe and controlled environment. While we emphasize “Teamwork”, participants also develop a strong sense of community service, personal development and leadership skills.

Participation in the Firefighter Candidate Program is creditable towards the Fox Lane High School Community Service Requirement and is an excellent addition to your college application. Candidates are eligible to apply for the Bedford Hills Fire Department Annual Scholarship during their Senior Year at Fox Lane, as well as numerous other scholarship opportunities only available to First Responders.

If you are interested in joining the Firefighter Candidate Program or would like more information, please contact Deputy Chief – Joseph Lombardo (FF Candidate Advisor) at
