SKILLS WE LEARN

The Fire Explorers program is designed to provide fire service and emergency preparedness training while building character, teaching responsibility, and developing personal fitness. The program activities are centered on six experience areas: career, leadership, service, social interaction, fitness, preventative and preparedness education (fire and life safety prevention). The six experience areas are relayed by mentoring, classroom instruction, and hands-on training.
