Cadet Program

Are you a 16- 19 year old searching for a rewarding career?

The CFPD Cadet Program is for in-district students, from 16 to 19 years of age, who are interested in exploring the emergency fire or medic service fields as a career. This is an ongoing program, and application to the program can be made throughout the year.

As a member of the CFPD Cadet Program, you will gain an understanding of the field of firefighting as a whole, and experience a taste of the day-to-day life of a firefighter/paramedic. Cadets are allowed to train with firefighters, and ride along, where appropriate, as an observer on incident calls.

Cadets meet on the first Sunday morning of each month and can attend all department training.
