WALLINGFORD — A program affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America is giving teens an inkling of what it’s like to be a firefighter.

Six members of Explorer 4578 were honored Monday night at the East Wallingford Volunteer Fire Department headquarters for completing their spring training. There are about 14 members in the program, but some were unable to attend the ceremony.

Deputy Fire Chief Steve Alsup said the Explorers take part in drills every other week.

The Explorers, Alsup said, are as dedicated to what they do as some of their high school classmates are to their athletic teams.

“It’s all part of being part of something bigger than themselves,” he said. “The difference here is that it doesn’t matter how big you are or how fast you are.”

With parents looking on proudly, the program’s advisers put two teams of Explorers through a drill in full gear.

The Explorers had to put on oxygen masks, uncoil a hose and, using a stream of water from a department truck, knock over some traffic cones.

Giovanni DiBianco, 17, has been involved with the program for two years. He considers the training to be “a lot of fun.”

“It’s something most people don’t get to do, much less people who are my age,” DiBianco said.
With adult volunteer firefighters often difficult to find, three volunteer chiefs who oversee the program see it as a way to possibly increase their ranks. Bill Celata, chief of the East Wallingford Volunteer Fire Department, said two graduates of the Explorer program have begun Firefighter 1 training, which will enable them to respond to emergencies.

“Having been Explorers was good for them because they already know what they’re getting into,” Celata said.

The program resumes in the fall.

Anyone interested in joining the Explorer program may call 203-294-2730.
