ELSMERE, NY - After a surprise proposal between two firefighters on June 22nd, Elsmere Fire’s Tuesday evening continued with a search and rescue drill. Firefighters made their way through several obstacles to search for victims and bring them out of the training tower. The department’s newest members of the Explorer program worked on setting up ladders and got some time on a hoseline. The Explorer program hosted by the Elsmere FD is a way for younger individuals to get introduced to the fire service. Explorer members are between the ages of 14 and 18 for anyone that may have an interest in the fire service or want to try it out.
