Temple Fire and Rescue is now accepting applications for their Junior Fire Cadet Program.
They are looking for children ages nine through 13 to attend a ten-day session, where students will learn to handle ladders, fire hoses and nozzles, ropes and knots, fire prevention, traffic safety, CPR and first aid.
Students will also learn the importance of ethics and setting goals, as well as how to work together as a team.
There is no charge to attend, and applications are available online at www.templetx.gov/fire. Be sure to click on “Junior Fire Cadet Program” to get the application. Applications are also available at Temple Fire & Rescue’s Central Station, located at 210 North 3rd Street.
This is the 21st year for the department to offer the program.
