There was lots of smoke about this week as the Fire Cadets gave safety
presentations in Queens Park, Crewe. Visiting children were delighted
to go into the Smoke Tent and climb over the Fire Appliance in the Park

The fire cadet unit, part of the Cheshire Fire Services, at Crewe is
open to boys and girls (13-17yrs) and gives them the opportunity to
learn a wide range of new skills within the framework of a uniformed
disciplined youth organization.

Cadets undertake a training program comparable to that of operational
firefighters. This not only provides them with an insight into the work
of the fire service but also enables them to develop leadership
qualities and team building skills, which are useful in other areas of
their lives.

Two cadet groups meet at Crewe, on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

Councillor Andrew Knowles, Health and Wellbeing Portfolio Holder for
Cheshire East Council, said, "Everyone always loves to see the Fire
Services with the interesting promotion and safety demonstrations. They
also get involved with a whole host of supportive and fund raising
events in the local community. The cadet teams are extremely dedicated
and these young people are the Fire Fighters of tomorrow, we are
extremely proud of them and the good works they do."
