Our son, Ryan, has been in the local Fire Fighter cadet program for the past 4 1/2 years. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful program, run by outstanding mentors of the fire department, whom are very dedicated to training young men and women for careers in fire service and emergency medicine.
Ryan, at age 15, took to fire fighting like a duck to water, and it's been wonderful these past 4 years to see him enjoy his chosen career. Now that he's 19, he's working as an EMT, and is continuing his training and community service with the FF cadet program.
Brian (Cadet Advisor) & Ryan
Last night, we attended the cadet Christmas party. We were so proud when Ryan was honored with Cadet of the Year!
We were also surprised that he was promoted to Cadet Assistant Chief!
Ryan will attend the Fire Academy in January.
Thanks, dear readers, for allowing me to share our happiness with you!
