Kids on the Department,Is it safe and at what age.Do you worry?

We have a good cadet program on our department which allows kids to join at the age of 13.They are not allowed in the hot zones.They can roll hose,stock trucks,clean masks,among other things.We make them attend our meetings to learn safety.This way when they become 18, they can become a firefighter with alot of traing behind them.This is also good for them to help them see what they will go through if they become a full time firefighter.Safety is our number 1 goal.They must keep good grades in school to be on the dept. also.We have a yearly award for the Cadet of the Year which as you know, kids love awards.Does your dept. have a program and how does it work.These are our future.We need to help them learn.Also, other kids see this and get involved.Go ahead, tell us about your dept. or your kid.Be proud of them.
