Boca Raton Fire Recue Explorer Post 315 is a program for youth that are ages 14-21 who are interested in the Fire Service. The goal of the program is to transform youth from a group of kids to an organization of young adults with discipline, dedication, and passion for the fire service. We produce the most highly qualified and well-prepared candidates that the fire service could ever ask for. These young men and women will accomplish all of this while still in high school, by attending weekly meetings where we train and drill in firefighting operations and emergency medical services. The Explorers also volunteer in the community and participate in a ride-along program, in which they respond to emergency calls with our firefighter/paramedics. The title “Explorer” is earned, not given, and it is synonymous with hard work and professionalism. Anyone who has the privilege of earning that title will hold on to life lessons and apply them to anything that they choose to pursue, whether in the fire service, college, or other career opportunity.
