A fire cadet secures a helmet on a fellow fire cadet

Apply to be a Fire Cadet

Fire Cadet applications will open 1 April and close 30 June 2024. This will be for a cohort of Cadets which will take part in our new 40 week programme starting in September. 

Our Fire Cadet programme runs one evening a week for a total of 40 weeks. You'll learn all about the fire service, what we do, and how we help make Essex safer. You'll have the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities including running, ladder pitching, pumping, breathing apparatus, search and rescue, first aid, control room procedures, science of fire and much more.

Please fill in the form below as fully as possible as this helps us find out more about the person applying and we only have a limited number of spaces at every unit.
