Cadets: Field Trips
The cadets take multiple field trips to local sites such as the 911-dispatch center, fire stations and other training sites throughout both years of the program.
Since 1999, the second-year cadets have taken a field trip to the east coast. The cadets start out in Washington DC then travel to Emmitsburg, Maryland; home of the National Fire Academy, and finish in New York City where a former cadet works on Squad 1 in Brooklyn. In each city, we visit both historic and fire service related sites.
This trip is the high point of the class for many of the cadets by completing their training and giving them a well rounded look into the fire service.
