Explorer Program

Explorer Post 95

The Diamond Springs El Dorado Fire Explorer Program is a youth organization sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America.  All Explorer Posts will be chartered under the rules and regulations of Learning for Life and the Diamond Springs El Dorado Fire Protection District.

The Diamond Springs El Dorado Fire Explorer Post 95 consists of young men and women who are interested in a career in the fire service.  Anyone between the ages of 14 and 20, who resides within the communities of Diamond Springs, El Dorado, Placerville, and Log Town are eligible to apply to Explorer Post 95.  Applicants living outside these areas will be accepted on a case by case basis.  

Explorers receive basic training and hands on experience as a firefighter.  It is the goal of the Explorer Program to provide the skills and training necessary for its members to successfully apply for volunteer, seasonal and professional firefighter positions.  Even if members do not decide to go into the fire service as a career, the program provides a structured, regimented environment that will benefit each and every explorer.
