Good Morning Explorers and Parents,

Sorry for the late email. There is an opportunity for Explorers who have turned in all requirements and passed their probation test to help out at the FDC for the Driver/Engineer testing. This is a great opportunity to meet Capt. Winters and others on the department during this time as well as getting in on how some of the training works for CSFD. We need at least 2 to 4 Explorers for this Saturday 05/15/2021 from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm located at the FDC and/or Sunday 05/16/2021 from 7:30 am to 1:00 pm. You will be provided with lunch. If you are interested and would like to sign up, contact Mrs. Smith immediately at 719-332-4030. She can also answer any questions you might have as well. Sincerely, Shannon Jantzen CSFD Explorer Post 1894 Advisory Board
