Post # 1219
The Rogers Fire Explorer's Post is
a group of young men and women between the ages of 16-21 who
have an interest in pursing a firefighting career. Explorers
give these young adults the opportunity to encounter similar
working conditions of actual firefighters.
Explorers meet at 6pm on the 2nd
and 4th Wednesday of every month. There they conduct
business meetings, train with members of the Rogers Fire
Department, and plan fund raising events. They are
instructed in areas such as fire suppression, fire
prevention, equipment, and apparatus; this includes hands-on
training with all the equipment necessary for a firefighter
to perform their job. Explorers participate in a ride-along
program, where they ride with firefighters and paramedics to
observe real emergency incidents.
