Huntsville Fire & Rescue’s Explorer Program is for young people interested in careers in fire fighting and emergency services. Explorer is an informative, hands-on program that allows young men and women to experience a variety of career possibilities in the Fire Services. As Explorers, they learn important skills such as team building, CPR and First Aid, while they lean more about a career in the Fire Service.
