Cadets

What They Do
Cadets’ Corner is the portion of the website dedicated to the cadets of Troy Township Volunteer Fire Department.  Cadets attend trainings on Wednesdays with the rest of the department members and in addition have their own trainings on Thursdays, run by Lt. Joe Slepko.  Troy’s cadets learn to work as a team, leadership skills, and to show and maintain respect to their leaders and superiors.  Trainings also include becoming familiar with squads and engines, how to roll hose properly, and learning the basic procedures for an everyday call.
