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 upholding the values of the Redmond Fire Department. Meetings are under the guidance of two program advisors on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The majority of meetings are held at Fire Station 17, located at 16917 NE 116th Street.
