Inspiring The Next Generation Of Firefighters

Fountain Springs, Schuylkill County -- A group of students at a Schuylkill County school are encouraging young people to get involved in their local fire companies.

The students at North Schuylkill Junior-Senior High School are trying to do two things: raise money to purchase smoke detectors and recruit volunteer firefighters.

They started a new group at the school that could be a game changer.

The junior firefighters group has already raised about $400 to buy smoke detectors.

The teacher said he's planning a special competition at the end of the school year to draw even more attention to the cause.
