You will also have the opportunity to gain a BTEC Level 2 in Fire and Rescue Services in the Community, as well as developing other transferable and practical skills that will help you with future training and employment.

Cadets also get to attend a range of Fire Brigade events throughout the year.

Joining requirements:

  • You must be between 14 and 17 years old
  • You must commit to attending cadets one night a week
  • You must be prepared to work in a team
