And that’s a wrap!

Last night was our last night of explorers for the school year and we ended it with a bang! Explorers showed of their skills to family and friends, climbed the aerial ladder and finished with pizza. We are so proud of all of our explorers!

We would like to thank the parents, all of our advisors, Engine 4, Ladder 6, and all the other crews that have helped us throughout the year. We couldn’t have done it without you! A huge thank you to Captain Matthew Gerber for taking these awesome photos last night as well!

Have a great summer and stay safe!

Some more photos from today’s training!

After some review, the explorers worked up a sweat during this consumption drill πŸ˜… The students worked through different stations with various skills that they have learned throughout the year all while wearing full gear, until their SCBA bottles were depleted of air. Today’s training was not only a review but a great session to see what it takes physically to be a firefighter.

Great job explorers! Keep up the good work!

05/18/2019

Some firefighter skills with a little bit of fitness this morning!

Explorers learned about what it takes physically and mentally to be a firefighter. During this drill, the explorers performed multiple skills that they have learned throughout the year in full gear until their SCBA bottles were depleted of air. This station shows the explorer using movements that would mimic forcible entry.
