Cadet Program

Our Cadet Program is designed to foster individuals on learning about, and ultimately becoming a member of emergency services. As a cadet, members enroll in school while volunteering for the department. This allows our cadets to obtain hands on knowledge while attending classes. In addition, Cadets are placed with a Field Training Officer to oversee their progress.

Our Cadet Program offers the information and tools to help individuals develop, grow, enhance and promote their future in emergency services.
