Shrewsbury Hose Company #1
Cadet & Jr. Cadet Program
Shrewsbury Hose Co. #1 offers a Cadet program for children 16 & 17 years old and a Jr. Cadet program for children 14 & 15 years old. Cadets and Jr. Cadets are welcome to attend drills and will get a hands on learning experience of fire fighting activities and fire fighter duties. There are also special Cadet training nights at which the cadets will learn about and how to use our equipment. Cadets (ages 16 & 17) are allowed to respond to fire calls with the Department (riding on the apparatus), but are not permitted in the “hot zone”. Upon turning 18 yrs of age the Cadets become full fledged members of the department. Cadets are accepted from any contiguous town of Shrewsbury; which includes Red Bank, Little Silver, Eatontown, and Tinton Falls. All Cadets and Jr. Cadets must keep a passing grade average to remain in the program. If your child might be interested in this program, email Ex Chief Peter Gibson at tower4577aol.com, or Ex Chief Bob Wentway at firstname.lastname@example.org .
