The Silverton Fire District operates an Explorer Program.  The program is a youth program designed to allow youth 14 years of age and older to learn the skills to become a firefighter.  Graduates of the program have gone onto becoming a professional firefighter and/or paramedic.

The Explorers meet weekly, on Tuesday evening at 7 PM, at the Main Station in Silverton, 819 Railway NE.

Explorers practicing their fire streams in a fun way playing water ball.

Explorer applications will be accepted through the months of September and February.  New members are required to complete a new member academy which will be the second weekend of October and March.

Applications are available below, please complete as much of the application as possible and return to the Fire District or Attendance Office at the High School.
