Cadet Program

Program Details

The Crete Fire Department Cadet/Explorer program has been established to allow qualified young adults between the ages 14-18 to learn about the fire service.

The program will serve to provide the youth of our community with positive role models and career guidance.

Cadets will be taught the basics of firefighter and emergency medical services. All training is hands on with supervision from instructors within the department. The program is a volunteer program and not a paid position.

If you want to get involved and help your community stop by the Crete Fire Station at 524 W. Exchange Street or call (708) 672-2727 and ask to speak to the recruitment coordinator.
