Explorer Post 45
Live The Adventure
Have you ever watched firefighters fight a fire or witnessed fire trucks racing to an emergency scene?
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to actually be a part of the excitement?
If so, Explorer Post 45 will fulfill your interests! By joining the Hughsonville Fire-Rescue Explorer Post 45 you will get valuable, hands-on experience with real firefighters.
Explorers are a group of young men and women who have an interest in the fire-rescue profession. Explorers experience similar training, duties and actual situations that Hughsonville firefighters handle on a daily basis.
As an Explorer, you will meet bi-weekly at Hughsonville Fire Station, located at Old Hopewell Rd in Wappingers Falls. Meetings are conducted in a business-like manner with agenda items including new/old business, planning community projects and instruction/training sessions.
Fire department personnel offer Explorers training in:
- Fire suppression
- Equipment use and apparatus safety
- Emergency scene safety
- First aid (First Responder)
- CPR certification
Fire prevention, public education and safety demonstrations are also a valuable part of the community service offered by members of Explorer Post 45.
Explorers are able to participate in the Ride-Along Program where they put their skills to work on emergency calls by assisting firefighters as part of the team. Saving life and property and helping our community to be a better place to live is always priority.
