RICHMOND, BC – Cadets from 692 BCIT Aerospace Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron learnt about fire safety from their local fire department as a part of their training program this month. Their night began with a lesson about general fire safety from guest speaker Mr. Brian MacLeod. They were also taught how to identify different types of smoke detectors, and the importance of fire prevention. The cadets were in for a treat as they had the opportunity to travel across the street to their local fire hall where they were greeted by experienced firefighters. The best part of their night, as some would recall, was the opportunity to explore the garage and equipment such as the firetrucks, the water hoses, and the main office.

“It was a very fun experience. My favourite part was seeing the fireman pole!”. says Cadet Kevin Lei

The Cadet Program is a dynamic, life-changing, structured, and engaging program for youth between the age of 12-18. The cadets make valuable contributions through citizenship and community-service activities. They are focused on developing valuable life skills such as leadership, self-confidence, self-esteem, communication and teamwork.
