Fire Cadets

Fire Cadets is an exciting youth engagement programme offering young people the opportunity to engage with West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS) and gain life skills they can use whatever their future holds. And of course, it’s lots of fun! Our cadets can take part in a range of activities which help build confidence, develop practical skills, and bring the local community together, such as:

  • Basic Fire-fighting drills
  • Charitable fundraising events
  • Fire Safety in the home
  • Fire extinguishing media and their use
  • First aid
  • Teamwork
  • Team building
  • Map reading
  • Survival skills
  • Climbing
  • Caving
  • Marching

Our cadets also have the opportunity to represent West Midlands Fire Service at prestigious events. The Fire Cadet experience gives you the chance to meet new people and take part in activities you might not have expected!
