The following material will be covered in our training sessions:

  • Hazmat Response

  • Vehicle Extrication 
  • Fire Prevention
  • Pumping Operations 
  • Fire Extinguisher Training

Please have your child dress in comfortable school appropriate clothing, and sturdy shoes (no flip flops or open toed shoes). Some of our activities will be outside involving running, and we want to ensure the proper footwear is worn.
Cadets not wearing appropriate footwear may be unable to participate in certain activities for safety reasons.
Meals will not be provided; however, there will be a small snack and drink provided daily.
Children will need to be at the Schertz Fire Department between 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. each day, and parents will be required to sign their child in each day. Pick up will be at Noon to 12:15, and the parents will be required to come in and
sign the children out. Children will only be released to adults listed on the registration form.
