About this opportunity

Cadets learn a diverse range of emergency service skills, develop their leadership potential and are encouraged to explore a career pathway or ongoing volunteering with emergency services; as the program has a focus on “building the next generation of emergency service volunteers”.

PCYC Emergency Services Cadets at a glance: Cadet programs operate out of sponsoring emergency service facilities. Young people are encouraged to consider a career in emergency services or to become an adult volunteer in emergency services. Cadets learn a diverse range of emergency response skills from highly experienced personnel.
