Rotherham fire cadets win second award

South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue’s Rotherham Fire Cadets have won the Young Leaders Annual Challenge for the second year running.

Police & Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings presented the award, as well as an additional £10 Amazon voucher for each cadet, kindly donated by the High Sheriff of South Yorkshire John Holt.

The team was made up of nine youngsters who competed against Army, Sea and Police cadets. The competition was made up of five disciplines; Observation, First Aid, Memory, Problem Solving and Communication Skills.

During the observation challenge the cadets had to watch closely as firefighters performed an extrication, they then had to answer ten questions based on the process.

Station Manager in Community Safety, Spencer Rowland said: “This is a fantastic result for a group of really hard working and committed kids. It is an excellent achievement and a credit to their dedication as cadets to have won the award, not least for the second year running.”
