The Bellevue Fire Department will host a “fire muster” on Saturday, April 26, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The public is welcome to watch fire explorers and cadets from around the region compete in firefighting and emergency medical skills events at the Bellevue public safety training center, 1838 116th Ave. N.E.

The participants are between the ages of 14 and 21 and they are typically youth who have an interest in firefighter/emergency medical services careers. Many fire departments sponsor fire explorer programs to expose young people to the typical duties of firefighters.

Events for the muster will include competitions in mass-casualty triage, breathing apparatus and bunker clothing don and relay, search and rescue.
