The Orange County Fire Authority Fire Exploring Program is an official department function. It is the intent of the Fire Authority, in conjunction with the Learning For Life, to offer young adults real life experiences, training, and exposure to the career opportunities available in the fire service.

Orange County Fire Authority provides fire suppression, emergency rescue, and fire prevention services. The Fire Authority assists with emergency management coordination for such disasters as earthquakes, hazardous materials coordination, and weed abatement services.

Fire Exploring gives young people valuable insight into the fire fighting profession. This insight will allow the individual to decide whether or not he or she desires to pursue a greater role in the fire service. By participating in the Fire Exploring Program, the individual will gain personal confidence, learn to use various tools, develop mechanical skills and aptitude, and gain a greater awareness of personal and fire safety.
