Join the EMS Youth Explorer Post

By  | 


The East Baton Rouge City-Parish Department of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) sponsors an Explorer Post for youth 15-18 years old interested in pre-hospital emergency medical care. Since 1983 this highly successful program has trained and mentored hundreds of young adults. Many of them are now active in the medical community pursuing careers as physicians, nurses, paramedics and other health related fields. 
Our first night meeting will be January 5, 2011, 7 p.m. at the City Parish Emergency Communication/Operations Center, located at 3773 Harding Blvd. (across the street from I-Hop)
For this first night meeting it is important that both a parent and the prospective Explorer attend. During this brief meeting we will review what is expected from both the Explorer and the Program. Following the meeting you will have the opportunity to sign up to join and parent signatures will be required to obtain permission for your son or daughter to participate.
The training for the 2012 class will begin in January at EMS HQ and these are the dates:
January 14, 21, 28
February 4, 11, 18, 25
March 3, 10, 17
(Classes are 8am-5pm)
Please note that regular meetings for the rest of the year are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month at EMS Headquarters on Mayflower from 7pm – 8pm.
Please attend the first night meeting for additional details. You can also contact Andre Toups at atoups@brgov.com or Mike Misenheimer at mmisenheimer@brgov.com for further information.
