It is week three of the 2018 Fire Cadet training academy at the FCFD. This past Tuesday night focused on Tools & Equipment and the apparatus that we operate.
Firefighters assisted cadets and recruits throughout the evening going over the details of every truck along with where equipment is located. Since cadets are expected to assist with many operations, knowing where tools are located is a key part of their role.
Of course what night would be complete without gear drills!?
How successful is our program at the FCFD? One of tonight’s assistants was a former cadet, and now line firefighter with our department, Seth Popham. We are pleased to have several firefighters who went through the cadet program here and several potential firefighters coming soon!
