CHELSEA, Ala. (WIAT) — As the flames begin to rise, the call comes in and firefighters prepare to make their way to the scene.
“There’s something inside you, you’re born with it” – Jason Hoosier, Chelsea Fire Dept. Explorer
But this isn’t a regular fire. This is a training exercise put on by the Chelsea Fire Department.
It’s a part of their Explorer Post Program.
“The Explorer Post Program is specifically designed for individuals who are thinking about the fire services as a career.” – Lt. Don Williamson, Chelsea Fire Dept.
It’s a program that helps people get a taste of what is to come. And helps them learn some of the basics.
It’s also a way to give explorers, like Jason Hoosier, a truly hands-on experience.
“It’s an adrenaline rush, I love it, I can’t get enough of it. It’s kind of like a bug that bites you. Once you get bit, you can’t get rid of it.” – Jason Hoosier, Chelsea Fire Dept. Explorer
