Truman Fire Department is offering a unique opportunity for those in the community ages 14-21 that gives them hands-on experience as a firefighter. The Fire Explorer program is run through the Boy Scouts of America and is a youth-led program with the firefighters acting as advisers. "I think the big thing is, is it shows the kids that it's not all about fighting the fire, responding to emergencies. A lot of what we do is community orientated, a lot of community service stuff that we do and just kind of shows the whole volunteer department and essentially what we do day-to-day in our roles with the fire department," says Truman firefighter and EMT, Matthew Lange. The application to sign-up is through Boy Scouts of America with a small fee and the next meeting is on February 7 at the fire hall in Truman at 7 p.m.
