Duvall Fire Explorers host open house, invite new members

The Duvall Fire Explorer Post is launching a recruitment drive in conjunction with the Nov. 19 Career Day at Cedarcrest High School.
   The Duvall Fire Explorer Post is accepting new members between the ages of 14 and 20 years.
   The public is invited to the Fire Explorers' Open House at the Lake Marcel Fire Station on Saturday, Nov. 23, from 1-4 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.
   In addition, Duvall Fire Chief John Lambert will be speaking at Cedarcrest High School on Career Day, and other Explorer advisors and members will be available with an informational display and handouts.
   The Duvall Explorer Post is a program of the Boy Scouts of America and is sponsored by the Duvall Firefighters Association.
   Firefighters act as advisors and trainers educating young men and women about the fire and emergency services profession. These young people gain experience in fire-related responsibilities in a non-hazardous capacity.
   After mandatory training classes and skill performance tests, the Explorers are eligible to participate in a ride-along program and observe on emergency responses.
   Explorers also help at community events as a part of the fire department and participate in other fire department activities. They need to be willing and able to carry, lift, climb and crawl as needed for the activities of a firefighter.
   For more information, contact the district at (425) 788-1625, call Explorer Advisor Ken Taylor at (425) 788-9317, or come to the open house on Nov. 23.
