Good Morning Explorers and Parents,

TWhat a busy week, especially Saturday! We started with a run to the Fallen Firefighter Memorial, then it was Extinguisher training on live fire, to rappelling, to climbing the ladder on the reserve truck to the top of the tower! We hope you are enjoying all of this training so far! Please make sure you are coming each day prepared! As last Saturday was hot, this Saturday will be hot also. Please ensure you are eating breakfast and drinking a ton of water!
