    Our Explorers are allowed to ride out on all fires in a designated truck. They report to their advisor on scene and are instructed what to do from there.
    As of now since our group is so new, the kids only do skills that they have been trained to do. As they learn more, the more they can do to help out the firefighters. The truck they ride out in is our heavy rescue so they tend to work air tanks more than anything right now.

    Exactly what he said. ... Seeing as I'm on HIS explorer post :P

    However, depending on the size of the department, I agree with most anything. If it's a smaller department with less apparatuses, and less members, if they aren't allowed to go, I can see that. Which would be the case with ours.

    However, if they're a bigger department, and are able to allow an explorer out on an apparatus, and also able to cover insurance liabilities, then that's fine too.

    Though, if not, they shouldn't be allowed on scene at all. Yes, there is some first hand experience, and other things they may not get/learn, but what's really more important? Learning a couple things they'll just get in FF1? Or their lives?
