Fire Explorer Program seeking participants


The Fire Department announces the start of its Fire Explorer Program. Orientation is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 16 in the Fire Department Training Room, above Central Fire Station in Hilo.

All 9th – 12th graders are invited to come with a parent or guardian to this one hour meeting to learn how to become an explorer. Individual candidates are encouraged to attend, as information such as requirements, program objectives and outlines will be discussed.

The “Explorer Program” is a program, for both girls and boys, that fall under the Boy Scouts of America Learning for Life program. Explorer Programs are sponsored by agencies in the community.

The purpose of the Hawaii Fire Department Explorer Program is to provide experiences to participants, preparing them to become responsible, caring adults.

Participants will have an opportunity to share in experiences that may help to develop themselves and a relationship to the community.

In the process, participants will learn about firefighting and emergency medical services the Fire Department provides for the community.

The Explorer Program has five areas of emphasis that work together to develop the participant as a whole:

* Career Opportunities
* Service Learning
* Leadership Experience
* Life Skills
* Character Education
For further information, call James Wilson at 896-1682.
