Yesterday I received a security alert that Firefox ESR was updated to 24.3.

I am wondering if since Tor Browser is based on Firefox ESR it is now
subject to security vulnerabilities? When you release the Tor Browser
Bundle do you identify the version (24.2, 24.3,etc) of Firefox that it is
based on?

When Firefox patches vulnerabilities in the ESR product and makes a new
release do you do the same? I took a look at the git for Tor Browser and I
can't tell whether or not it integrates whatever changes are in Firefox

New releases are announced here and in the website blog. Changes are mentioned and a link to the changelog is provided. That shows that we've been in 24.2 since mid-December and 24.3 will appear with TBB 3.5.2, due for release within the next week or so (I presume).

Are we 'now subject to security vulnerabilities'? Sure! And we'll be subject to the yet-unknown vulnerabilities of 24.3 when it's released in TBB. It's a work in progress.
