Emergency Services Cadets
The Emergency Services Cadet Corps is challenging, diverse and rewarding. You’ll gain valuable skills and become an active citizen in the community.

As an Emergency Services Cadet you learn about the diverse nature of Western Australia's emergency services and help promote public awareness in the management of emergencies at the State, regional and local level. Emergency Service Cadets undertake core training modules and support these with an extensive range of electives.


Core modules include:

  • first aid and emergency care
  • radio communication
  • fire safety and basic fire fighting
  • search and rescue techniques
  • boating and water safety
  • map reading and navigation
  • field craft and camping
  • leadership and instructional training.

Electives can include:

  • Driver training
  • SCUBA Diving
  • Bronze Medallion
  • Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Voyage
  • Adventure Based Courses/Activities
  • The Duke of Edinburgh's Award
  • Train Small Groups
  • TL3 or power boat courses.


The Department of Fire and Emergency Services is the host organisation of the Emergency Service Cadet program and units work closely with the Fire and Rescue Service, State Emergency Service, Bush Fire Service and Volunteer Marine Rescue Services.


Normally operated out of school hours, the Wongan Hills Emergency Services Cadet Unit runs within school hours as part of the curriculum, due largely to the length of the School Bus runs. 

Our cadets annually attend a Bivouac Camp to the “Fowler Block”, and another week camp in Term 4, alternating locations north and south of Wongan Hills.

Cadets also have the opportunity to apply to sail on the STS Leeuwin, attend Young Leaders Days, participate in ANZAC and Remembrance Day Services as well as other full day activities such as roping, abseiling, archery, etc.
