Kern County Fire Explorers receive new crew carrying vehicle

The Kern County Fire Explorers will receive a new crew carrying vehicle, or CCV, on Wednesday May 14, according to public information officer Brandon Hill.

Hill says the main goal of the explorer program is to train young men and women in the same manner as regular firefighters in order to help them pursue their goals of becoming a career firefighter. Fire Explorers go through many different drills and attend multiple public relations events throughout the county. The CCV will be used to transport them to different activities.

Hill says the CCV formally served the US Forest Service and was deemed surplus, at which time the fire department received it from the Federal Excess Property Program at no charge to the tax payers.
