Fire Cadets


Run by volunteers, the Fire Cadet Branch is based in Droitwich. They meet every Wednesday 19:00-21:00hrs.

Fire Cadets are aged 13 – 17 years. We recruit new Cadets every June to start in September. In order to join you must be no older than 16 on 1 June of that year.

New Cadets take part in a structured training programme from September to May where they learn a wider variety of skills and practical exercise that focuses on Fire Service activities, prevention activities and social responsibility.

The culmination of this training is the Fire Cadet Award 1 and a Celebration of Success event in early May where they demonstrate their new found skills to their families.

Cadets also take part in a wide range of other activities including fundraising and adventurous pursuits.

Fire Cadets is based on an open to all ethos. There is no weekly subscription to be a Cadet.
