Scarsdale Fire Explorers: Post 620


Fire Explorers are young adults between the ages of 14 to 21 who are interested in the fire service, community services, and learning about emergency services. We meet twice a month to training with career and volunteer firefighters, or perform community services. Each Explorer will be provided with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) called turnout gear to be warn during training. This looks great on a college resume!
