FAST Connect (Fire & Ambulance Services Teen Connect) is a uniformed group set up by the Fire Services Department (FSD) in 2021 for the participation of secondary school students. FAST Connect aims to recruit around 200 students in the 2021/2022 school year.
The objective of FAST Connect is to provide a learning platform for members to find out more about themselves, cultivate positive thinking and orient themselves career-wise through various training and activities. In the programme, members will take part in training of skills, discipline and leadership, through which they will acquire practical knowledge and skills, and at the same time, develop correct values, adherence to law and discipline, and team spirit. It is the FSD's hope to, with FAST Connect, nurture young people into a new generation with social commitment, a sense of national identity, passion for Hong Kong as well as international perspectives.
