Fire Explorer

The Fire Explorer program gives youth (ages 14-20) a first hand experience in what it mentally and physically takes to be a professional firefighter. Participants will receive fire service training under supervision of trained firefighters. The program is designed to give participants beneficial experience, discipline, and knowledge that can apply to any career field. To join, contact the Division Headquarters nearest you.
