April 29, 2011 Leave a comment

We received a request from the Minnesota Fire Exploring Association to spread the word as they are actively recruiting volunteers for this year’s Minnesota Fire Exploring Conference.

The event takes place on May 14 at the Columbia Heights Safety Center and begins at 8 a.m. More than 30 Minnesota Fire Explorer posts are expected to attend the event.

The group is looking for about 60 firefighters, officers and emergency medical professionals volunteers to help judge the competition, which consists of several fire and EMS events. Meals will be provided for the volunteers.

Please contact Maple Grove Fire Lt. Riley Slimmer at or by phone at 612-282-6061.
