City of Lincoln
Fire & Rescue Department
Fire Explorer Post #888
Lincoln Fire, because of air quality standards, cannot burn buildings for
training like the rural departments. The explorers have been invited by
Waverly, Bennett, Oakland, and Seward, all great experiences for our
Explorers. All of these burns are carefully controled by the State Fire
Service and we are allowed to control exposure and defensive handlines, and of
course help with all of the background activities (shuttleing S.C.B.A. tanks,
laying and picking up hose lines, washing and reloading hose etc.) and the
Explorers absolutely love it all!
