The award-winning Inver Grove Heights Fire Department Explorer Post #627 was established in 1997. For young men and women who are interested in careers in the field of fire service, Exploring offers experiential learning with lots of fun-filled, hands-on activities that promote the growth and development of adolescent youth.
Over the years, our Explorer Post has performed thousands of hours of community service providing fire safety education at community events, canvassing high risk communities installing smoke alarms, and assisting with fire department needs. They have successfully competed at local, state, and national competitions, are well-known for their paramilitary bearing, and have a reputation as being respectful, hardworking, and focused.
Many past Inver Grove Heights Fire Explorers have found great success in the public safety industry, working as career and volunteer firefighters, Paramedics and EMT’s, and police officers, both locally and abroad. Post #627 has also been recognized by the Northern Star Council with their “Community Service Award” on several occasions over the years.
Fire Service Exploring is for young men and women ages 14 to 20. Meetings take place from 7:00pm to 9:00pm every other Tuesday evening.
