Northamptonshire Emergency Services Cadets (NESC) deliver a combined emergency services curriculum allowing young people aged 13-18 to develop skills across the Emergency Services as well as important social and life skills.
Cadets are fast becoming an important part of the policing and fire family, offering a key link to younger members of the community.
Cadets attend weekly sessions in term time to learn the skills of the trade, as well as volunteering within their local community to make a positive impact and take part in events and parades.
Michelle Bates is the Youth Engagement Officer for Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service and is the Unit Commander for the specialist Fire Cadets.
She said: “They will learn basic hose skills, getting water on in the drill yard, they will put up ladders and build dams, knots and lines. They have also been to our fire training centre where they have worn breathing apparatus and they have studied water rescue and road safety.
“All of the prevention messages that we like to get out into the community are instilled into our cadets, and hopefully they go away and tell their friends, colleagues and family about some of the things they have done and spread those safety messages.”
Michelle puts the cadets through their paces with the help of a small but dedicated team. There are ten volunteer leaders, nine Operational Youth Instructors and the fire service Prevention Team staff who help to assist.
