Evesham Fire-Rescue Explorer Post 226
Established in 1995 in association with the Boy Scouts of America, Evesham Fire-Rescue developed Explorer Post 226. The Evesham Fire Explorer Post is a youth oriented program directed at helping young adults who have an interest in the fire service.
The program meets two Thursdays a month at various fire stations throughout the township from the hours of 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Explorers are taught the basic skills of firefighting and first aid. Much of the training is hands-on and is supervised by Evesham Fire-Rescue personnel. Meetings also include field trips to various outside agencies that the Evesham Fire-Rescue works with.
At age 14, you can join the Evesham Fire-Rescue Explorer Post. The Explorer Post is nationally recognized by the Boy Scouts of America. Explorers participate in training, field trips and other department functions. At age 16 you will be permitted to ride on the apparatus as an observer, and at age 17 you may apply to attend firefighter or EMT classes. Upon reaching the age of 18, you'll be trained and ready to respond to emergency incidents.
Explorers will learn how hard work, discipline, and a structured work environment in the fire service promote safety and teamwork toward successfully completing a common objective. Explorers will also gain a sense of pride in serving the community. Parents will witness the positive outcome by having their child enroll in this growing program.
Explorers who attend Lenape District Schools can now receive 5 elective credits for completing EMT or Firefighter I certifications. Once you have joined the post you can speak with your guidance counselor for additional information.
The Explorers are always in search of energetic young men and women who are eager to learn more about the fire service. Any resident of Evesham between the ages of 14, provided they have completed 8th grade, and 18 years of age, are eligible to apply.
