Explorer Post 904

The San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department Explorer Post 904 is made up of dedicated men and women who are interested in pursuing a career in the fire service. 

Explorers meet bi-monthly and take part in classroom and hands-on fire-suppression training. Explorers also take part in community relation and fire prevention activities. Explorers are allowed to participate in the Department’s ride-a-long program which allows the Explorer to experience what it is like to work a 24 hour shift in one of the City’s firehouses.
