Coonalpyn's Country Fire Service brigade is looking for its firefighters of the future.

A meeting will be held at the town's fire station at 6.30pm on Monday with a view to starting a cadet program for children aged 11 and up.

Brigade member Andrew Davis said about 10 people had already registered an interest.

Brigades across South Australia run similar programs, which allow cadets to ride on fire trucks, learn to use CFS equipment, and take part in community events and team-building exercises.

Cadets are typically supplied with equipment: overalls, a helmet, goggles and gloves.
