well with jr members i do believe that under 16yrs of age are not allowed to ride on the rigs. do to insurance issues. but the thing is if they cant ride on the rigs how are they gonna get to the location of the emergency? and how are they to learn what to do on location if they cant ride?
check with your insurance carrier as far as I know jrs are not allowed to ride in apparatus in emergency mode in PA If you contact your local state rep ask for PA emergency service laws guide and volunteer emergency services manual these will help with your questions
in the emergency services law book part xiii pg 357 covers minors and pg 98 in the manual covers them also your company sop/sog's should cover the does and do nots for your jrs hope this helps
