Fire-Rescue Responds to Brush Fire

March 9, 2016

Fire-Rescue responded to the report of a brush fire in the SE area of the City near San Filippo and Cogan. Approximately 45-50 acres were involved, with 4 homes suffering damage. Fire Marshal Ron Bailey is currently investigating the cause while fire personnel will continue to monitor the scene. Please avoid this area if possible.


 Fire-Rescue Considers Creating a Fire Explorers Post

Palm Bay Fire Rescue is looking for local leaders and cadets who would like to join the Palm Bay Fire Explorers Post.  This program is ideal for those who are not old enough to become a volunteer or paid fire fighter but have an interest in the field and in serving the community.  Participants learn important life skills as well as gain relevant experience for a potential career in the fire rescue field.  Details about the Palm Bay post can be found below:

·        Leaders must 21 years of age or older

·        Cadets must be between age 14 - 20 years old and can be male or female

·        Cost Leader/youth registration fee is $45 annually and $50 onetime fee for background investigation

·        Uniform cost/type to be determined (but comparable to costs of Boy Scout uniforms)

·        Initial meeting dates/times to be determined (scheduling likely to be 2nd & 4th Wed & Saturday that follows the said Wednesday)

o   Sample schedule would be a (1st & 3rd or 2nd & 4th) Wednesday evening 6:30-8:30pm or 7pm-9pm (classroom)

o   Saturday that follows 1st & 3rd or 2nd & 4th, Wednesday 8am-11am or 9am-12 noon (didactic)

o   Specialty events/training could be on different days than the regular training days

Fire Explorers is a para-military organization, as is the fire department.  The goal of the organization is to help young adults to become successful adults, and if they so choose, professional firefighters.
