Date: 13th June, 2017

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is looking for young people from the Trowbridge and surrounding areas to join its new Fire Cadet programme.

The Service is keen to recruit young people between the ages of 12 and 18 to take part in this rewarding training scheme, which will not only be fun and enjoyable but will also give the cadets the chance to learn new personal and social skills, and also obtain a BTEC qualification.

Youth Intervention Coordinator Christine Sharma, who will oversee the scheme, said: “The programme, which is linked to the National Fire Cadet model, will be delivered by firefighters and volunteers across 38 weeks within the academic year of 2017/18. Drills will take place every Thursday evening at Trowbridge fire station and will involve practical and theoretical elements, along with community based social action projects.”
