LAFD Cadets

For more information about the Cadet program, click here.

This program is designed to support the men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department at any type of major emergency.

LAFD Cadets and Los Angeles Firefighters work side-by-side. Following an introductory training program, Cadets respond to real emergencies with firefighters and paramedics, and assist them by performing routine supervised tasks. LAFD Cadets assist firefighters around the fire station including station maintenance, maintaining equipment, training drills, and by becoming involved with the community assisting with community relations and fire prevention. This is our highest level of all LAFD Youth Programs and requires a minimum of one year commitment.

Next orientation date to be determined. Please feel free to explore our other youth programs in the mean time.
