Geneva Fire Explorers to host benefit car wash at fire station


The Geneva Fire Explorers will use their water hoses to clean up cars instead of put out fires on June 21.
The group, which provides hands on fire and rescue training for boys and girls ages 14 to 21, will host a benefit car wash at the Geneva Fire Station from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The car wash will provide funds to maintain the program.
Cheyenne Fishbach, 15, said she has always dreamed of becoming a firefighter, and now she’s getting a head start towards her career with the Geneva Fire Department Explorer Post. She serves as the chief of the local Explorer’s Post.
“Everyone has the power to make a difference,” she said. “It’s all about using it wisely. This is a time where I can be in the state of mind preparing for when I am an adult and gaining real experience.”
Geneva firefighters train the explorers in setting ladders, running trucks, rope rescue, outside controlled burns and community outreach.
The Initial cost to join the post is $25 and then $1 per month in dues. All gear is supplied. The post meets at 7 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month at the fire station.
The station currently has five explorers in the program, but can include as many as 12 young adults.
For more information about the Geneva Fire Explorer Post, call Mike Sanzotta at 466-3321.
