Fire Rescue Explorer Duties
During weekly meetings (and on occasional weekends), BSO Fire Rescue explorers participate in a variety of educational, service and personal development projects.
Upon successful completion of a six-month probationary period and a 40-hour medical training course, explorers may respond on fire rescue apparatus to actual emergencies with trained professional firefighters and paramedics.
Community Involvement and Service
Explorers provide citizenship to their communities by developing and participating in organized community service campaigns; many of these activities fulfill Broward County School Board community service hours requirements.
Explorers accompany fire prevention bureau personnel on safety inspections and community education projects to increase awareness of fire prevention.
Explorers are encouraged and supported in the pursuit of educational excellence and must meet strict minimum educational requirements set forth by program guidelines.
