Career Exploring is a national program run through the Boy Scouts of America. It gives interested youth the opportunity to get hands on experience in a variety of career fields and grow as leaders in their communityies as explorers and individuals. Exploring is meant to prepare youth for careers in their desired career field.
For 23 years, the Union EMS Explorer post has been proudly preparing individuals for the world of Emergency Medical Services. Serving alongside fellow Explorers involved in Emergency Services throughout Union County, Union EMS Explorers can expect to be part of a hands-on and fast-paced program that will lead to being fully prepared and highly trained. The Union EMS Explorers program is open to students age 14 to 18, who are interested in a medical field of study.
Union EMS Explorers meet for two hours twice a month to learn about different areas of the Emergency Medical Services System through hands-on participation and interaction with Union EMS Paramedics. Each meeting will offer Union EMS Explorers a unique opportunity to “explore” EMS as a potential career and to learn more about healthcare professions in general.
Mondays, twice a month, 6 to 8pm
Explorers will have the opportunity to provide input to future activities based on their attendance and participation. Once minimal requirements are met, Explorers will be eligible to schedule ride-alongs with the advisors on the ambulance.
