Are you between the ages of 14 and 18? Do you want to learn what it takes to be a firefighter in a safe, fun environment?
Do you want to join a great organization and make new friends?
Peachtree City Fire Rescue has an Explorer Program that can do all of that and more!
Peachtree City Fire Rescue and The Peachtree City Volunteer Firefighter's Association sponsor Explorer Post 209. Boys and girls aged 14 - 18 may join. Many former Post 209 members have gone on to careers in the Fire and EMS Field. Explorers meet every Thursday 6:30 PM - 9 PM. They train under the supervision of experienced firefighters in real firefighting drills. Explorers are allowed to participate in a ride-along program and are active in many Volunteer Association activities such as the annual pumpkin sale and Santa Run.
To join, bring a parent and stop by Station 81, 110 Paschal Road, on Thursday evenings during meeting time.
Explorers are affiliated with Learning for Life and The Boy Scouts of America.
