    Default Explorer post Help

    Now, I'm currently a explorer with Hiawatha Vol. FD, which is a good department, but i have a problem. See, I Live about an Hour south; Washington, but Hiawatha is the closest post. I've talked to the chief of the department in Washington, he says that i have to speak with the city on the explorer post re-opening. (we had one, closed in 1998) now, the city officials are stingy on letting an explorer post open. i need some help with what to do to help make a post in my hometown, so i don't have to drive an hour, and to get some help to get high school kids interested in things like this.

    Not an explorer

    Sounds like first you need to get the fire dept on board, do they want to invest the time??

    Maybe not for you but future , some high schools teach emt as part of their courses offered

    In my state some offer fire fighter certification courses

    So you come out of high school certified and ready to apply

    This isn't the first time they've thought of re-making the explorer program, i've got 4 firefighters on board. I also need help with getting other's on board
