West Valley Fire Explorer Post #530
The West Valley Fire Explorer Program, a joint venture with Learning for Life, is designed for young adults 15 – 21 years of age who are interested in learning about a career in the fire service. In addition to learning about the fire service, the Explorer Program’s main goal is to provide young adults with a sense of responsibility to their neighborhood through ongoing community-related activities.
Fire Exploring gives young people valuable insight into the fire fighting profession. This insight will allow the individual to decide whether or not he or she desires to pursue a greater role in the fire service. By participating in the Fire Exploring Program, the individual will gain personal confidence, learn to use various tools, develop mechanical skills and aptitude, and gain a greater awareness of personal and fire safety.
Post size is limited to 20 Explorers who are led by a professional firefighter known as an Explorer Post Adviser.
