Come learn about firefighting, emergency services, and EMT. I invite you to become a member of the Fire/EMS Exploring program sponsored by the City of Van Wert Fire Department. An open house for this program will be held on September 25, at 6:00 p.m. at the fire department, located at 515 E. Main Street, Van Wert, Ohio. Spots are limited so don’t wait, RSVP now! Exploring is for students 14-20, who have completed the 8th grade.


The purpose of this program is to give you information and experiences associated with a career in firefighting, paramedic, and related areas.  Meetings will be held once a month throughout the 2019-2020 school year and will consist of hands-on activities and tours of facilities. Firefighting activities will include Fire Science, safety, hoses and water systems, and use of the self-contained breathing apparatus. EMS activities will include taking vitals, triage, first aid and CPR, as well as advanced skills such as starting an IV and protecting an airway.


For questions regarding the program or to RSVP for the open house, contact Matt Kibler at 567-245-1259 or matt.kibler@scouting.org. The registration fee for this post is $44.00 and provides all participants with general liability insurance. This fee can be brought with you to the meeting. Your parents and friends are welcome to attend the meeting to learn about the program.


Exploring can be an informative and fun way to help you prepare for the future!  Feel free to bring along a friend.
