Explorer Scout Program

Program Information

The Redmond Fire Department is the proud sponsor of Explorer Post Number 007.

The Explorer program offers persons, age 15 to 21, the opportunity to explore the fire service as a career. Through a combination of hands-on training, classroom instruction, and volunteer work the Explorer develops a breadth of knowledge and experience which is beneficial to all future endeavors, including a fire service career.


Explorer members commit to at least one year of meetings, public events, and limited fire/medical-rescue call responses. Meetings are held two or three times per month under the guidance of the program advisor. The majority of meetings are held at Station 11, the headquarters of the Redmond Fire Department, located at 8450 161 Avenue NE in downtown Redmond.
