Explorer Post 226
Established in 1995 in association with the Boy Scouts of America, Evesham Fire-Rescue
developed Explorer Post 226. The Evesham Fire Explorer Post is a youth oriented program directed at helping young adults who
have an interest in the fire service.
The program meets two Thursdays a month at various fire stations throughout the township
from the hours of 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Explorers are taught the basic skills of firefighting and first aid. Much of the training
is hands-on and is supervised by Evesham Fire-Rescue personnel. Meetings also include field trips to various outside agencies
that the Evesham Fire Department works with.
Explorers may participate in the Evesham duty crew program as observers. Duty crews
operate out of the Marlton Station on Main St. and cover both fire and EMS.
Explorers will learn how hard work, discipline, and a structured work environment in
the fire service promote safety and teamwork toward successfully completing a common objective. Explorers will also gain a
sense of pride in serving the community. Parents will witness the positive outcome by having their child enroll in this growing
The Explorers are always in search of energetic young men and women who are eager to
learn more about the fire service. Any resident of Evesham between the ages of 14, provided they have completed 8th grade,
and 21 years of age, are eligible to apply. If you are willing to make the commitment simply write to:
