The East Baton Rouge City-Parish Department of Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
sponsors an Explorer Post for 15-18 years of age and 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.
For this "First Nighter" 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 the program and parent signatures
will be required to obtain permission for your son or daughter to participate. Program costs are: $24. Registration Fee and $95. for
The uniform may be purchased upon completion of the course by the graduating member.
Upon successful completion of our class, they will be eligible to participate in our Paramedic ride-along program. This program allows them to work with and observe EMS Paramedics as they perform their job. They can also participate in the
numerous ongoing activities that the Explorer members plan.
For additional scheduling or training information please call 389-5155 or email Sandy Miller.
