Fire Cadets Program
This Fire Department sponsored program is intended to introduce young men and women to the firefighting profession. It is the hope and goal of the program to develop the cadets’ skills related to firefighting through hands-on training, utilizing contemporary equipment, in an effort to help the cadets determine if the profession is a good fit for them. Currently eight of the department’s firefighters came through the program. As a cadet’s skills advance, they are provided the opportunity to conduct Ride-Alongs on Prescott Fire engines as well as assist in the training of the newest cadets. The cadets also serve as support volunteers with City and Fire functions such as philanthropic events, actors in role-play simulations, and have participated in the annual Fourth of July Hose Carts races for the past 15 years.
- Age for membership: 14-20
- Minimum grade level: ninth grade or homeschool equivalent.
- Meetings are held on the second and last Mondays of the month.
The program is presently managed by Engineer Conrad Jackson (retired).
