Have you ever driven down Elm Street in Millbury Center and noticed the fire Headquarters bay doors opened on a Tuesday night at around 6:30 PM? Have you wondered why there was a bunch of teenagers in fire gear around the trucks and using some of the equipment? 

Well this group of teenagers (ages 14-21) are the Millbury Explorer Post 13. What is the Explorer Post? Well the Explorer Post is a organization there Cunha, Jonathan

to give people ages 14-21 the chance to learn and explore the life of a firefighter. This gives people the opportunity to see if they would enjoy that career path in their life. Not only do the Explorer’s train and learn about tactics real firefighters use, they are called out to some fire scenes. The Explorer Post is called out automatically with the Women’s Auxiliary. At the scene Explorers are responsible to help refill air tanks that are emptied. Along with this they are responsible for replacing the air tanks on the back of firefighters as they get out of the building to help them be able to get back in as quickly as possible. The Explorers are also responsible to help collapse the hoses and pack them back onto the fire trucks after the fire is put out. How can you become part of the Millbury Explorers? Well you have to be in the age range of 14-21. Then all you have to do is come to Millbury Fire Headquarters when the meetings take place which are every other Tuesday nights at 6:30 PM.
