    Cool

    Explorers in plano do almost everything the firemen do. they can hook up plugs they can refill SCBA's and what ever other odd jobs that are needed. the explorers are assigned a station and a shift to work with. they eat with the ffs and do chores etc.. At the station they are assigned an engine,truck, or med unit to ride with. the explorers can go on anything toned out for thier apparatus. the explorers can also respond to structure fires on their own via pager.

    Well the way we are set up to do things is we ride the engine only two cadets are dispatched only if there is not a full crew. Others can get into there PV's and drive. We sit in the seat which has no SCBA. And We do basicly what a Cadet or Jr. would do.

    We have it set up that the Explorer can ride on anything. We have pagers and when ever they go off we head to the fire house. We can ride in the jump seat, We can also ride in a pack seat as ong as there is not a firefighter on that side or if the firefighter dose not need the pack. We Can ride the Seat(officer seat). Hell we can take camand if we are the frist in. Other than that we can do what all Explorer's can do.

    On the job, we do a lot of things. We refill SCBA bottles, hand out equipment, help pump help with overhaul and other things.
