Fire District Explorers

Explorer Post 100:

In February of 2007, the Alexandria Fire District Explorer Post was established. The program follows the “Learning for Life” through the Boy Scouts of America. The purpose of this program is to allow young teens to be involved in the fire service and when these Explorers attain the age of 18, they can become regular volunteer members of the Fire District. The Explorers train on Wednesday evenings and are permitted to train with the regular members on Monday evening. They do have limitations to what they are permitted to do training wise and are well supervised by the Fire District Advisor(s).

The Explorers continue to sponsor a monthly “Youth Dance” held at the Fire Station during the school year. They continue their fund raising event with the address signs and assist with the Santa on the Fire Truck and needy families at Christmas time. The Explorer program has been a great success and remains a very active part of the Fire District.
