The Woodinville Fire & Rescue Explorer Scouts took top honors in the Washington Association of Future Firefighters Muster competition Saturday, May 5at the North Bend firefighter training facility and included competitions centered on firefighting activities.
The team from Woodinville Fire took first place in many of the individual events, including medical skills, search and rescue and managing fire hoses.
The young men and women between the ages of 15 and 21 had been training for months to be prepared for the completion which they participate in each year.
In addition to the Muster, the Explorer Scouts are a vital piece in the Woodinville community and are often seen helping out at most major events throughout the year.
The Scouts will be honored at the next Board of Fire Commissioners meeting on Monday, May 21, 5 p.m. at Fire Station 31.
