About Us

Our Mission

     The Junior Firefighter Youth Foundation (JFFYF) was founded in 2003, by Captain Brent Burton. Captain Burton is a career fire service professional, with over 30 years of experience with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

     The JFFYF is a community based and educational operation that assists various schools within the greater Los Angeles County region. Our two collaborating organizations are the African American Firefighter Museum and the Stentorians of the Los Angeles County and City Fire Departments.

     The Foundation provides services on the campuses of several elementary and high schools, by providing a Junior Fire Cadet Program and Future Firefighter Program.
