The Sedgwick County EMS Explorers are a voluntary post
organized under the Learning for Life Explorer program, sponsored by the
Sedgwick County EMS and under the direction of full time EMS Paramedics.
Exploring is the young adult career education program of
Learning for Life for both young men and women who are 14 and graduates of the
eighth grade or 15 through 20 years of age.
The focus of Explorer Post 911 is Emergency Medical Services.
Post members who are 16 years of age, after completing some initial
requirements, may ride on Sedgwick County EMS units for a 12-hour shift once or
twice a month. All Post members have opportunities to participate in other
EMS-related events, such as River Festival standbys and some public relations
events. The Post also manages first aid stations for large Scouting events
involving hundreds or even thousands of participants on a regular basis. These
are good experiences for the development of leadership skills and a chance to
use your first aid knowledge. Training and learning opportunities are provided
on a regular basis at Post meetings. The majority of the adults who work with
our members are paramedics, EMTs, and other health professionals with a
background in the emergency field.
Post meetings are usually held twice a month, on the second
and fourth Sunday afternoons, if possible. Our meeting days sometimes vary
however, because of the events we participate in and because the health
professionals who work with the Post have work schedules that change frequently.
We usually meet at the Sedgwick County E.M.S. Training Center which is located
at 1015 W. Stillwell. It’s always best to contact someone associated with the
Post before attending your first meeting to be sure of schedules and locations –
a phone number is provided below for that information.
