New Boston fire cadets ready to face the heat at academy
Advisor John Jones said, “It’s very beneficial. They come back and they utilize the skills and they do very well.”
New Boston has two female cadets, Capt. Emma Little and Lt. Brooklyn Merron, and two male cadets, Patrick O’Brien and Patrick Dalton, with two additional members coming on board. Explorer cadets range from age 14 to 22.
“I like the action and I like helping people. You can never really be bored with this,” said Merron, who has ambitions to be an emergency room nurse. She will be a senior at New Boston High School this fall.
“I’m excited. I went last year and it was an awesome experience. I made a lot of new friends and kept in touch with them. I learned a lot about my fire gear, history and other things,” said O’Brien.
“My dad is a fire chief and I’ve been living and breathing fire since I was a kid. I knew a few years ago we had to keep it in the family. I love the fire house, the experience and to help people,” said O’Brien.
