LAFCRD Fire Cadet Programs Grows; Increases Need for Program Sponsors

Submitted By: Katie Heck

In Lehigh Acres, there is nothing more important than fostering activities for our local youth. The Lehigh Acres Cadet Program is a youth-oriented program focusing on a vocational study of a professional firefighting career with Lehigh Acres Fire Control and Rescue District.

The mission of the program is to enable Cadets to better understand a firefighting career through an experience that balances both classroom and hands-on learning. Each Cadet will learn mental and physical wellness, a sense of self-responsibility, personal growth, leadership, discipline, teamwork, and fire prevention skills.

 The Cadet Program’s goal is to ensure that all eligible youth are able to participate, regardless of their financial ability to purchase the required clothing and gear. Community partners can help support the Cadet program by sponsoring the purchase of their equipment, travel to competitions, and funding various team activities. Any amount can help make a difference in a potential cadet’s ability to participate in the program. As the program continues to grow in members, the need for financial support increases.
