In May, 1973 the Hilton Fire Department Explorer Post 911 was formed. The Explorers are part of the Boy Scouts of America. The Fire Department sponsors this organization of young people to teach them firematics and methods of fire safety, preparing them to become future firefighters. The young people range in age 14 to 21 years. Explorers meet every Wednesday night at 7:00 pm. If you would like to join the Explorers please print out a application and drop it off at the fire house during the week or at our Wednesday night Drills.
