    Default Important! All Explorers, Jr's and pioneers

    These are the rules and guidelines from the national website. Copy, paste take to your department if your instructor does not have a copy or is not aware of them.





    -Explorers may not be substituted for trained personnel.

    -Explorers must be equipped with personal protective equipment that is appropriate for the activity being done.

    -Explorers may be mobilized only as a post, with required leadership. Explorers are not on call as individuals.

    -Explorers who ride on apparatus or other department vehicles must be seated and must wear a seat belt.

    -Explorers may not drive department vehicles.

    -Explorers may not climb aerial ladders.

    -Explorers may not climb ground ladders that exceed 35 feet in length, or not supported against a structure.

    -Explorers may not enter or perform ventilation procedures on a burning structure.

    -Explorers may not use any tools or gloves on energized electrical equipment.

    -Explorers may not operate cutting torches

    -Explorers may not operate hydraulic rescue tools or equipment.

    Good stuff. It would be helpful if you provided a link to this material on that site as a reference.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    Website link:

    http://www.learningforlife.org/exploring/fire/

    look at policy statements, click safety issues

    being an explorer on a fairly busy dept and wantin to look out for my fellow service members these guidelines should not be deviated from unless the situation is critical, EX: national disaster, terrorist attack, and then only if the sufficient man power is not available and you must break the rules to protect and help your brother and sister fire fighters and the community.
