What does a 'Cadet' get to do?
Every Green Bay Metro Fire Cadet gets fitted for firefighter gear and is assigned their own gear locker. Our training nights take place at various fire stations and public safety buildings dependent on what topic we train on that night. Every training night is different and new skills are learned throughout the school year. Some activities that cadets will have the opportunity to participate and learn about are: emergency medical care, fire attack, vehicle extrication, hazardous materials, self contained breathing apparatus, marine rescue, aerial/ladder work, and so much more. Cadets will also have the opportunity to tour local public safety facilities, such as the Brown County Communication Center, local Emergency Departments, and other fire service related agencies.
