Explorer Post 3369

The Washington Township Fire Department's Explorer Post 3369 is a great opportunity for young men and women aged 14 to 20 to learn about the Fire Service. The Explorer program is overseen by the Boy Scouts of America as part of their Learning for Life program.

ExplorersFire Explorers in Washington Township are able to, while still in High School, learn about all aspects of the Fire Service. Explorers undergo instruction from experienced firefighters, learning in the classroom and through hands-on practical environments. The program aims to give young adults career training and guidance, while teaching life skills and the character education for which the Boy Scouts are known.

ExplorersPost 3369 meets the first and third Sunday of the month at various fire stations. The Explorers may train on medical responses, ladders, CPR, hoselines or anything that actual fire crews may face in the real world. Throughout the year Fire Explorers travel to Explorer Competitions to put their new skills to the test against other Explorers in the region.
