Fresno Fire Department
Explorer Post 324

The Fresno Fire Department Explorer post is open to young men and women from age 14 to 20 years old with an interest in learning more about careers in the field of fire or emergency services.

Practical Experience

Since the program’s inception in the early 1990’s, many of the programs own explorers have been successful in attaining full time fire service positions with many career fire departments throughout the state.   Our goal is to provide the experience and training for someone to leave our program and be successful at a formal fire academy.

Practical Learning

We cover 13 training modules which provides a overview of  the basic subjects of firefighting and emergency operations. Once initial training is complete, explorers can complete a process to become capable of performing limited field operations alongside on-duty crews.

Explorer Meetings

Our normal meetings are held every other Saturday at the Fresno Fire Department’s training tower located Fresno/E Street.
