Future firefighters to compete in “Fire Muster” Saturday

The public is invited to watch as nearly 200 Fire Cadets and Fire Explorers from around the region compete in firefighting and emergency medical skill contests at a “Fire Muster” on Saturday, April 24 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The event is hosted by the Seattle Fire Department Cadet Program in association with the Washington Association of Future Firefighters and will take place at the City of Seattle Joint Training Facility, located at 9401 Myers Way South.

Competitions include mass-casualty triage, search and rescue, hydrant connection, a combat challenge relay and more. In the Combat Challenge Relay four-member teams will divide up to complete in carrying a hose bundle up the tower, hoisting a section of hose, search and rescue, and repositioning a charged hose line. 

Participants are youth between the ages of 14 and 21 who have an interest in firefighting and emergency medical services.  Many fire departments sponsor Fire Cadet or Fire Explorer programs to expose young people to the typical duties of firefighters.
