Cadet Makes Transition to Firefighter

Congratulations to FF Justin Maggard.

FF Maggard made the transition from Cadet to Firefighter effective Tuesday, May 15, 2012 and is now working toward being cleared to ride.

Justin has been a dedicated Cadet Member and is looking forward to continuing his education, training and service to the citizens of Kent Island.

In keeping with tradition, Justin commemorates the transition from Cadet by signing the Cadet banner that hangs in the engine bay (See photo).

Lt. Francis Mowbray, Cadet Team Leader said, “it is truly a pleasure to have these young citizens volunteer as Cadets, to see them transition to the senior department and grow into qualified emergency responders. The Cadet Program provides our 14-16 year old teenagers the opportunity to learn about Fire and Emergency Medical Services, the importance of community service; as well as to gain team building and other life skills”.

Cadets are 14 to 16 years of age. If you are interested in becoming a Cadet Member, stop by the fire station or contact Lt. Mowbray at or call (301) 821-7011.
