A cadet scholarship fund was created in honor of the late Fire Chief Dan Newburn by the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation.

Newburn, who climbed up the ranks of the Tucson Fire Department during a 34-year career, died Sept. 18 at the age of 65. He began his career with Tucson Fire in 1974 and retired in 2008.

Newburn was a "strong proponent of the cadet program" during his role as a firefighter, public educator and chief of the department, said Mike McKendrick, chairman of the fire foundation. 

The foundation is partnering with Tucson Fire Department to support the Chief Dan Newburn Cadet Scholarship Fund.

The fire cadet program is aimed at youth ages 14 to 21 who are interested in a firefighting career, McKendrick said.

Youth are mentored in the program and they study fire science, emergency medicine, and receive firefighter training on the aerial ladder and in the use of rescue tools.

McKendrick said the scholarship will benefit eligible candidates who need financial support.

The three-week program, which usually is held in June, costs each participant 0.

Applicants must be nominated by a high school vocational counselor, or a career counselor. Each applicant must pass educational and physical fitness requirements.

The foundation hopes to fund about 12 cadets in next year's summer class, which is taught at the Southern Regional Public Safety Academy in Tucson.
