Chandler Fire Department Cadet Program

 Chandler Fire Cadets Staff

Chandler Fire Cadets is a developmental program designed to assist young men and women interested in a possible career in the fire service and give them community service opportunities. It is open to any individual between the ages of 15 and 21 years old (Must be 15 years old by first day of Cadet Academy and Cadet will be required to resign on their 22nd birthday).
 
Cadets get a wealth of instruction and opportunities to learn and perform duties commonly demonstrated within the firefighting profession. The advisors to the Cadet program are full time Chandler Firefighters.

To become a Fire Cadet, candidates must complete Chandler’s Fire Cadet Academy. Upon graduation from the Cadet Academy, Cadets 16 years old or older will become certified to ride with fire crews and operate with them.
 
Cadets commit to attend monthly meetings on the first Saturday and the third Wednesday of each month. Saturday meetings are from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Wednesday meetings are from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Chandler Fire Training Center, 3550 S. Dobson Road.

“The Fire Cadet program is a great experience for young men and women
who will accept the challenge to become stronger, both mentally and physically.
they will learn what it takes to be a member of the Chandler Fire Department,
and we will find out if they have the commitment, work ethic,
perseverance and teamwork that’s required.”
