In 2016, the Hawkins County Rescue Squad Junior Membership Committee re-establishment the Junior Member Program. The program is being reincarnated as an effort to engage youth to pursue public service and to grow the membership of the Rescue Squad with tomorrow’s leaders. By participating in a youth program, members said, young people gain confidence, develop mechanical skills and aptitude, and gain a greater awareness of personal safety. A vital purpose, particularly among programs affiliated with volunteer-dependent organizations, is to provide an ever-evolving supply of interested, involved, trained and experiences young people who might become adult emergency service providers when they outgrow the youth program. As community-service volunteers, Junior Recruits will develop a sense of public service among youth in the county, assist with all levels of operation within the Squad, and come to understand the great level of compassion and training required to assist persons in their time of need.
