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 16, 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, other department functions, and will be permitted to ride on the apparatus as an observer. Explorers turning 18 years old can apply to become a firefighter and/or EMT and apply to attend firefighter or EMT classes.
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.
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 16 and 18 years of age, are eligible to apply. If you are willing to make the commitment simply write to:
