LFEPA's Strategy Committee agreed in March 2015 for LFB to deliver a minimum of eight cadet units annually. In September 2015 ten cadet units were launched and negotiations to secure funding are ongoing with a further three London boroughs to investigate the potential of setting up new cadet units in 2016.  LFB is keen to work in partnership with key agencies to establish a Fire Cadet unit in every London borough if further funding can be secured.
