Our Mission

To enhance and promote Fire Exploring in Fire Department agencies across the region.


The Minnesota Fire Explorer Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was founded in 2008 and exists to bring together Fire Exploring Posts from around the State of Minnesota and surrounding region to promote the fire service among young men and women. The Learning for Life Program, which is affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, and local fire departments team up to enlist males and females between the ages of 14 and 21 to educate and train our future firefighters to give them an edge in the fire service. MN-FEA is also a registered post (Post 3055) with Learning for Life.

MN-FEA exists to support the programs currently operating and provide resources for those interested in starting a program. If you would like to join an Explorer Post, we suggest you check out our Get Involved page or call your local Scouting council office.

If your Explorer post is not currently a member of the Association and would like more information or would like to get involved, please contact us at mnfeaboard@gmail.com
