Monett Fire Explorers Post #2001 recently hosted the annual Fire Explorers Weekend in Monett. Approximately 30 Explorers and adult advisors from Monett, Branson, Logan-Rogersville and Western Taney County participated in the three-day event. Activities included a simulated driver's competency course, a confined space course, hazardous materials response scenarios and rappelling from the Southwest Area Career Center rappel tower. Explorers were challenged to overcome personal obstacles and try new activities centered around fire service-related topics. "These teens are amazing," said Lt. Shane Anderson, Monett Post advisor. "To see them conquering their fears and building their confidence is very rewarding. They are truly dedicated to learning how to serve their communities." In the photo above, Monett Explorer Rachel Young rappels for the first time. In the photo below, some of the participating Explorers pose with Monett's ladder truck.
