CADET PROGRAM

 

The Atascadero City Fire Department’s Cadet Program is a unique opportunity for High School students to learn about and experience the fire service.  Cadets are hired as volunteers, and are part of the work experience program through the Atascadero High School.  High School Seniors are given priority and they spend 3 to 4 hours each day, 5 days a week, working alongside the full time firefighters.  While at the station, Cadets learn about the job of a firefighter and train for fire, rescue and medical emergencies.  Additionally, they help clean and maintain the station, emergency equipment and fire engines.  When an alarm comes in for an emergency, the cadets ride on the engine and help out at the scene if it is safe to do so.  The Cadet Program is a great opportunity for any student who thinks they may be interested in pursuing a career in the fire service after high school.
