Is your child entering grades 2-8th? Have they ever wondered what it took to be a firefighter? Well then we have the answer! Its that time of year for our annual Cadet camp! This event teaches children hard work, self confidence and how to be an effective member of a team. Cadets learn fire and life safety skills, see demonstrations of firefighting equipment and get to participate in hands-on exercises. Enthusiastic campers visit the training grounds where local firefighters train and then get to spend the night at the firehouse. The camp has proven to be successful in motivating families to consider evaluating fire and life safety plans in their homes. Registration is open, please follow this link to sign up and see more info!
