Fire Exploring for the Wilmar Volunteer Fire Department is a great way to become involved in your community! Our Fire Explorer Program is an agreement between the Wilmar Fire Department and the Learning for Life (Boy Scouts of America), and is a youth program serving the Wilmar community.
Our purpose is to provide experiences to help young people mature and prepare them to become responsible, caring adults while learning about the fire service, training with the firefighters and eventually working alongside the Wilmar professional firefighters.
Our program is open to anyone from age 151/2 to 20. What we can offer you is an opportunity to attend an annual week long Explorer Fire Academy, earn valuable life experience and community service hours, and add experience to your college application and resume.
We meet on the Third Tuesday of every month for training, and are currently accepting applications for anyone interested in becoming part of a great organization.
Training information can be found on the Calendar page link.

Fire Explorer Program
Wilmar Fire began a Fire Explorer Program in the year 2000, which has been a huge success to this day. High School students interested in the fire service are given a “hands-on” approach to all the different duties and responsibilities of a Firefighter. Many of our Explorer’s go on to become Volunteer Firefighters for Wilmar, and some eventually end up with paid career jobs in the fire service!
