    I love the family like atmosphere and feeling like you really belong. Our explorers are really close knit(as I often jokingly call our advisor father.) It's an awesome experience. One I would never trade.

    yo dude you say you like the family atmosphere but being a firefighter (wich i belive most explorers want do) is all about playing with fire and geting to be one of the few that gets to run into a building when everyone else is running out its about the adrenaline rush you get when you realise that those are YOUR tones comeing over the radio its about the few that get to ride in the big red fire engine its about being what everyone else wants to be but knows the couldnt its about trust and helping people

    What I like most about being a Junior/Explorer is feeling like your part of a team or that you completed what you set out to do. Not too many people get to feel this feeling. The adrenulen rush is unbelieveable when you pull up to a job and theres people running everywhere and fire blowing out windows. To the average civilian this looks like chaos, but to a firefighter, its a planned attack....

    Not necessarily. Maybe that is why you are in it. The post did not ask what are some of your favorite things, it asked what IS you favoprite thing. Yours may be playing with fire, and I respect that. I just think you need to have respect for the comments of others. I listed my favorite thing about being an explorer. We are all in the fire service for different reasons.

    I am a third generation firefighter in our community. I have always wanted to be in emergency services and this is a way for me to get experience before I am 18. Also, In Alaska, at age sixteen, you can be a state certified Emergency Trauma Technician(ETT), you have to be 18 to be EMT certified.

    I would have to say that I have two favorite things that tie each other. One of them is the look on little kids faces as you show them the rig and let um sit in the engineers seat. The other would have to be the feeling you get when the lights click on and the tones go off and the dispatcher names your rig to respond.
