Phoenix Fire Department Training Academy

The Phoenix Fire Department Cadet Program was started in 1975. The purpose of the program is to provide cadets with hands-on emergency medical training, work experience at fire stations, training in firefighter skills and volunteerism for the community. 

Cadets are required to volunteer a minimum of 32 hours per quarter (every three months) to the department. This may be done in a variety of areas such as teaching CPR, helping at a fire station open house, public education events or the service van program. 

The Cadet Program is a tremendous asset to the Phoenix Fire Department. More than $250,000 of annual volunteer service is provided to the community. It is also a great way to gain knowledge about the Phoenix Fire Department, learn the basic skills of a firefighter and get support, encouragement and insight in pursuing a career in the fire service.
