Your Baytown Fire Department offers a Fire and EMS Explorer’s program through the Boy Scouts of America. This program focuses on giving career training and development in the Fire and EMS industry to kids ages 14-20 by combining classroom lessons and hands-on training. The Explorer’s program will benefit these young adults by improving self-confidence, providing leadership experience and networking development, preparing them for college and career readiness, as well as offering scholarship opportunities to participants.
The Explorers Post 1173 has been temporarily suspended. This pause will allow us the time needed to revamp the program thoroughly. Our primary goal is to establish a more structured and efficient program structure. We firmly believe that this effort will not only lead to a more successful program but also significantly improve the experiences of our young explorers. We are intending to relaunch the program Fall 2024.
