Our Explorer Post is active year round and thanks to Chief David Volk and the members of the Perth Amboy Fire Department our Explorers recently participated in an exciting field adventure. The day started with a tour of the Perth Amboy Fire Department boat, Marine 5, which is moored at their Municipal Boat Basin. The Explorers learned about the many special skills involved in fighting ship board fires and performing water rescues under many different conditions. During the instructional period they were treated to some of the most incredible water front views as Marine 5 traveled through the Arthur Kill and in to New York Harbor.
We are grateful to the Perth Amboy Fire Department for their hospitality and providing a realistic overview of their profession.
