    Question New Explorer Program

    I am currently working with the fire chief in my city and we are starting a explorer program. Does anyone have some suggestions how things need to be ran. Any suggestions would be great because we are both new to this. The department is volunteer so if there is any other departments ran this way i am open to suggestions.

    We started a JR firefighters program about 2 years ago. Have you thaught of that. It is basically a chance for minors 16 and up to get there feet wet and see if they are truly interested.If you are thinking this might be a way to start you will have to contact a lawyer to get all the paper work correct. Minors also means lawsuits if not done right.
    Stay Safe and live long

    We have checked into the jr. firefighting program but we think that the explorers program is going to be a better option for our department. There are just certain thing like funding that the explorers program willl be able to help with. Do you know of anyone who has a explorers program that may have some advice for the beginners
