I was wondering if anyone can help me out with some background info on the Explorer program.
I owe my recently found love of the fire service to my son and Scouting. Someone suggested he should ask our local fire dept if there were
things he could do around the station as a way to earn service hours toward
rank. It didn’t take long until we were both hooked. I’m am now a volunteer and
going thru Fire 1 classes. We train every week and he comes with me once a
month on engineer’s night to help.
Anyway, thru this Group I became aware of the Fire Explorer program. I’ve been involved with Scouting for a few years now as a leader and have never heard of it. I did some online research but
couldn’t find any info really connecting the program to BSA. I’ve contacted our
Council about it, but in the mean time can anyone give me some good background
info on the program? I think my son would really enjoy it.
