Fire Department Explorer Post 136

The Epping Fire Explorers are up and running strong. We welcome our new members from Amesbury, Massachusetts, Danville and Exeter, NH. Our members were able to assist at a training in Newcastle. They were able to learn fire suppression while assisting firefighters and training staff. Several got a lot of training in the use of Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus, (SCBA). They also learned the proper way to clean their “bunker gear” to remove all contaminates. We encourage all youth 14 to 20 to check out firefighting and emergency medical. Just call 603-679-5446 and leave a message for Captain Cray or Firefighter EMT Janas. FF Janas and FF Beauchene are busy giving a fun and educational program. Do you think you can pick up an egg with the “Jaws of Life”? How about bowling with 50 feet of hose. Bet you can’t get a strike!
