We have now started a phased return to Fire Station based delivery as we aim to get all of our Fire Cadets units open as soon as possible. Our Volunteer Cadet Instructors are going to be working hard over the coming weeks to ensure our units are Covid-19 secure for the return of our Fire Cadets.
In the meantime, our Fire Cadets are still very active ‘virtually’ and taking part in many challenges and activities online and on social media. You can download our virtual engagement plans at the bottom of this page.
If you are a current Fire Cadet and would like more detailed information regarding when your unit will reopen, please contact your Fire Cadets Coordinator. If you are interested in joining LFB Fire Cadets, please get in touch by emailing email@example.com and we’ll discuss the next steps with you, and make sure you’re ready to start with us as soon as possible.
Fire Cadets offers young people the opportunity to gain a real qualification, and develop their confidence and personal skills. It's a bit like Scouts or Guides – only you'll gain real-world skills, make lots of new friends, learn to work as a team, and have a lot of fun along the way.
Meet real cadets, get an idea of what it's like, and see what's in it for you!
First and foremost, because it's really good fun. But there are lots of other reasons too:
There are lots of development opportunities to aspire to, including Officer Cadets, Marine Cadets, join the Ceremonial Team, or apply to become a Fire Cadet Ambassador! Explore the Fire Cadet journey here.
Cadets attend a local venue, usually a fire station one evening a week, working alongside Brigade and community volunteers.
Fire Cadets units are located in all 32 London Boroughs and the City of London.
