Search begins for Fire Cadets

Have your say

YOUNG people across Newtownabbey are being invited to apply to join the Fire Cadets.

Glengormley Fire Cadets are currently on the look-out for new recruits - boys and girls who were born after July 1, 1998 and before September 1, 1999.

The Cadets meet at Glengormley Fire Station on Monday nights between 7pm and 9.30pm during school term times.

Cadets will be given an insight into the work of the Fire and Rescue Service, including experience in the use of ladders, hoses and breathing apparatus. They will also get the opportunity to learn valuable team building and first aid skills, and take part in social events, charity fundraising projects and an outward bound weekend away.

Applicants must live or go to school within the Glengormley Fire and Rescue Service District (which includes Ballyclare), and potential cadets may be asked to take part in an informal interview procedure.

Application forms are available by contacting Glengormley Fire Station, 165 Church Road, Glengormley, BT36 6HH. Telephone: 9084 0225.

The closing date for applications is Saturday, June 1.
