Recruitment Update

Unfortunately, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions we are putting on hold recruitment for our Fire Cadet programmes.  We are committed to recommencing delivery of our Fire Cadet programme as soon as it is safe to do so for our Cadets, Instructors and Operational crews. Please keep an eye on this webpage and our social media accounts for updates.

Stay Safe!

There are three Fire Cadet Units across our service area, based at Swindon, Trowbridge and Hamworthy.

The aim of Fire Cadets is to support the development of young people by providing a positive role model and giving them opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities.

Young people between the ages of 13 and 18 can apply to take part in this rewarding training scheme, which not only gives them the chance to develop and improve personal and social skills but also obtain certificates and accreditation.  Sessions are a mix of theory and practical activities to enable Cadets to build a portfolio of evidence to gain certificates.

The programme is linked to the National Fire Cadet model, and is delivered by specially trained firefighters, Fire and Rescue Service staff and volunteers. Each course lasts for 38 weeks within the academic year, starting in September.

It is designed to be fun, but it also challenges and develops the participants and supports their school and home lives by getting them to:
