Fire Cadets

Cheshire Fire cadets

This section is currently under construction.

Are you aged between 12 and 17 and want a new challenge?

Fire cadet units provides an insight into working within a uniformed service, providing an exciting and unique opportunity to develop both personal and social skills by promoting self-discipline, team work and citizenship.

What we do

As a cadet, young people have the opportunity to learn the basic skills of a firefighter while participating in a wide range of activities in and around their local fire station.  Cadets also have the opportunity to gain recognised qualifications and awards including BTEC and Duke of Edinburgh awards. 

Find out more about the awards and qualifications you can gain as a fire cadet

What does being a fire cadet mean?

As a fire cadet you will be treated as a young firefighter. Provided with your own uniform, you will be expected to attend a weekly drill night at your local fire station. Here you will learn many of the skills of a firefighter and work towards a number of awards while having fun and making new friends.  You will be expected to show a certain amount of discipline and commitment, just like a firefighter.

Life as a cadet - fun and games

In addition to weekly activities at your local fire station there are many opportunities during weekends and school holidays; such as outdoor activities, camps and social trips.  Many of our cadet groups play an important role in the community with cadets helping fit smoke alarms and supporting other local initiatives. 

Cheshire Fire Cadets have travelled abroad to communities in Northern Ireland and Germany. We also run an international project with destinations including Ghana and Nepal, where we will assist with building a school - Nepal School Project 2015
