BFD College Firefighter Live-In/Bunker Program

Are you a firefighter and a student attending college in the Rochester area? 

If so then the Brighton Fire Department has a Live-In/Bunker Program that you may be interested in. Our program will allow you to enhance and build your firefighting skills, participate as an interior firefighter while you are away from home at school, gain experience working with both career and volunteer firefighters all while attending college rent free.

If this interests you the Brighton Fire Department will host an informational meeting for student firefighters interested in joining our live-in program for the 2017-2018 academic year.

The informational session will be held at Brighton Fire Station One (3100 East Avenue, Rochester) in March 2017 on a to-be-schedule Saturday morning at 11am.

Applicants should contact Deputy Chief Scott Wihlen ( in advance for information on the program and program requirements.
