    Default What is the difference.

    Just wondering, what is the difference between a Explorer and a cadet?

    Explorers are a type of boy scout run by the fire department and LFL. I can't tell you anything about cadets.

    "Cadets" are usually run in combination with highschools.

    Students leave early and either go to the academy to take essentials and a few other courses, or EMT-B along with a few other courses. They are also asigned to a shift(we have 24 on 48 off so we have A,B,C shifts shift A is usually where cadets are put) where they ride along as pretty much glorrified observers/juniors.

    Heres a link for my counties cadet program:
