Fire Cadets

Devon & Somerset Fire Cadets is a programme open to young people between the ages of 13 to 17. The programme runs over a full school year and within this time, the Cadets are also expected and encouraged to take part in social actions within their communities. Every week (school term) Cadets attend one of the 6 Fire Cadet Stations for 2 hours to take part in firefighter activities. These Stations are:

  • Ilfracombe
  • Wincanton
  • Frome
  • Plymouth
  • Tiverton
  • Exmouth (In partnership with Exmouth Community College)

The students are provided with uniforms to wear and full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for practical drills. DSFRS first year Fire Cadets will also complete the BTEC Qualification which is nationally recognised.

DSFRS are also members of the National Fire Cadet Board. From this we are able to enhance our Cadets with more resources and also take part in national events.

We are looking for young people from different backgrounds to work together as a team, building confidence and developing them into positive passionate role models.

We are recruiting Fire Cadets for the year starting September 18. If you are interested or would like to know more, please contact the Community Safety Education Team:

We look forward to hearing from you.
