Fire Explorer Program

Print
Melbourne Fire Explorer Post 2514 is a chartered Explorer post of the Central Florida Boy Scout Council and has been in existence since early 1980. The Post offers young men and women the chance to participate and investigate possible careers in the fire service and emergency medical fields.

Fire Explorers participate in hands-on training with the firefighter/paramedics of the Melbourne Fire Department. The Explorers, after initial training, report to the various fire stations throughout the city, and under supervision of the station commander assist the firefighter/paramedics in limited duties at fire and emergency scenes.

The Fire Explorer program is open to all young men and women, ages 14 through 21. These individuals must be in high school or college and not be working full-time. Individuals at age 14 must be in ninth grade.
