About the Program

The Fire Explorers are sponsored by the Rialto Fire Department and Learning for Life. We will teach you the necessary skills needed to ride along with firefighters and paramedics. You will learn all aspects of the Fire Department including training, and day-to-day operations. You will be able to do most of the training maneuvers alongside professional Rialto Fire Fighters.

Our post has attended the Inland Empire Explorer Academy for the past several years. Academies include education and hands on training in:

  • Auto Extrication
  • Confined Space Rescue
  • Hazardous Materials Training
  • Structure Fires
  • Wildland Firefighting

Our group has won several trophies and awards in Musters and Fire Training Competitions and has been seen on local television, in numerous newspapers, and in Rialto parades.
