Fire Service Cadets Put Skills To The Test At Fun Activity Day

Fire Cadets from across Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire cadet (HIWFRS) units joined together for the first time ever for a day of firefighting related fun and obstacle courses on Saturday 8 June.

Cadets from Sandown, Basingstoke, Eastleigh, Gosport, Ringwood, Rushmoor and Southsea all came together for an activity day held at the Oasis Academy Mayfield in Southampton.

Each cadet team competed in various assault courses including fire service equipment such as hose reels and rope ladders.

 After all the activities the group of cadets enjoyed a well-deserved barbecue dinner and ice creams to finish off the day. 

HIWFRS’ Fire Cadet Manager Clair Hayward said: 

"I’m so proud of what the cadets achieved throughout the day - they showed sheer determination, resilience and fantastic teamwork skills and we are so lucky to be working with such an amazing group of young people."

Fire Cadets is a training programme run by the fire service to give youngsters between the ages of 13 and 17 the opportunity to gain essential social, life, work and wellbeing skills, and develop their confidence and personal skills.

The Service is looking for new recruits to join the Ringwood, Rushmoor and Sandown Fire Cadet units in September.
