We’re determined to keep LFB Fire cadets going throughout the pandemic, and even though units on fire stations may be suspended for now, 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 interested in joining LFB Fire Cadets once the Covid-19 suspension is lifted, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll discuss the next steps with you, and make sure you’re on our waiting list 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.
