ABOUT OXNARD YOUTH FIRE EXPLORERS

The Oxnard Fire Explorer Post 9244 was founded in October of 1994 and is currently the only Fire Explorer Post within Ventura County. Its first class graduated in July 1995, advancing 17 fire explorers to ride-a-long status and assigned engine companies. The Program has a solid reputation of serving as a quality youth group within its community, while training potential firefighters for future employment.

Fire explorers perform a number of tasks to assist Oxnard Firefighters in their daily operations. Under direct supervision, fire explorers participate in basic fire training, assist responding fire companies on scenes of emergencies with various support activities and provide direct assistance in fire prevention and public education activities.

Successful completion of the Oxnard Fire Explorer Basic Academy will enable the explorer to respond to alarms, load and roll hose, replace spent air bottles, assist with non-hazardous fire ground duties, assist firefighters with medical aid and rescues, perform station and facilities maintenance, attend monthly meetings and drills and have access to fire related technical manuals for independent study.
