Fire stations seek new cadets

Three Sheffield fire stations are looking to recruit new members to their fire cadet teams.

The cadets train at the stations once a week, learning firefighting skills and techniques from specially qualified instructors.

Fire Cadets also play a key role at community events, and attend team-building days throughout the year.

The three Sheffield stations currently recruiting are:

• Lowedges Fire Station, Lowedges Road, Sheffield S8 7JN
• Birley Moor Fire Station, Moor Valley, Sheffield S20 5FA
• Elm Lane Fire Station, Elm Lane, Sheffield S5 7TU

New recruits must be aged 13 to 18 years old.

Youth Engagement Officer Nicola Hobbs said: “We’re looking for enthusiastic and motivated youngsters who are eager to work with our fire cadet instructors to learn new skills, and support the fire service’s work in the local community. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain first-hand experience of fire station life and to work closely with local firefighters.”
