Nearly 300 firefighters are expected on Saturday May 25, 2024 in Argentan (Orne) on the occasion of the departmental technical gathering of Young Firefighters. The JSP are these girls and boys aged 11 to 16 who train in their leisure time for four years, with the aim of becoming a volunteer or even professional firefighter.

Every year, a challenge is organized to create a little emulation between the JSPs of the different rescue centers. In teams of five, these JSPs compete during small maneuvers: fire drills, first aid exercises but also a multiple choice questionnaire are on the program for these future firefighters. “This year, there will be unique demonstrations with the participation of people with disabilities, a common theme sponsored by the France handicap association,” underlines Lieutenant Natario, from the Argentan rescue center.
