Formed in May 1999, The Clifty Six Cadet Program, gives young men and women to the opportunity to train as firefighters. Cadets, like their adult counterparts, must complete the state mandated minimum 24 hour training before they can respond on actual fire runs. Cadet are also trained in auto extrication and rope rescue, both high and low angle, plus first aid and CPR.
Cadets use the same equipment as their adult counterparts and have their own sets of turnout gear. Cadets who are qualified to respond are issued pagers, the same as the adult firefighters.
Cadets function in a support role on the fireground and/or rescue scene. They do not engage in interior attack at a structure fire.
