Cadet Fire Academy Launches in August

Facilitating fun while forming future firefighters.

That’s the goal of the Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company’s Cadet Fire Academy. Set for August 2-6, the program is open to boys and girls ages 14-18 who want to one day become firefighters – or just want to know more about the job.

Participants will learn about fire safety, how apparatus and trucks function, and first-aid and CPR. They’ll also have hands-on experiences with equipment and gear and watch live demos by firefighters performing various training exercises, including ladder rescues, vehicle incident scene management and working in low visibility.

Lunch and t-shirts are provided. There is no cost to participate. Participants should wear casual clothes with sneakers/closed shoes, as there are physical activity periods and games during each session.
