Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) Cadet Program provides the opportunity for young men and women, ages 16 to 20, to become familiar with career opportunities available in the fire service. Through classroom instruction, hands-on training, and volunteer work, Cadets are provided a base of knowledge and experience that will benefit them not only in fire service careers, but also in all future endeavors. The program is designed to encourage and promote accountability, being safe, communication, teamwork, fitness and develop leadership skills.
PF&R is committed to providing our Cadets with the most realistic experience possible. The Cadet Program is designed and functions similarly to a Fire Science/Fire Academy.
