This is a fantastic opportunity and honour, Frome Fire Cadets will take part in a whole range of challenges and competitions against Fire Cadets from all over Europe.  We will have the honour of representing the country, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, the county of Somerset and Frome in the young firefighters competition. It will  test the technical skills and sporting ability of junior fire brigade teams representing their nations. The competition will be fierce, with over 60 teams taking part but carried out in a spirit of competitive friendship. We will be using hoses and stirrup pumps, tying knots to secure equipment, crawling through tunnels, balancing and completing an obstacle course all against the clock. There will be over 500 cadets from 30 different countries taking part.

The trip is not just about competition we will be taking part, along with the other European Fire and Rescue Services in a cultural exhibition in the city centre where will have a stand promoting Frome and the county of Somerset. We will also be  networking our approach to Community Safety / good practice to other European Fire and Rescue Services, strengthen links between European Fire and Rescue Services and helping improve EC citizen safety. Finally, we will be delivering a 5 minute Eurovision Song Contest stage to hundreds of people from all over Europe!!!
