Central Bucks EMS Xplorers!
ATTENTION ALL XPLORERS
ALL XPLORER MEETINGS AND ACTIVITIES ARE ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The advisors, along with the senior officers of Xplorers, were attempting to restart in-person meetings. Unfortunately, with the spike of Covid cases, it has been decided to once again put a hold on our efforts.
This IS NOT an easy decision – we miss you all! But as we struggle with the Pandemic, we must remember that we are a 'hands-on' organization practicing patient assessment, vitals, care, triage, packaging and so much more. It's impossible to stay responsible and socially distant.
Also remember, we meet at an active 911 squad where our Emergency Medical Service professionals are in the field every day – responding to help patients who may already be infected with Covid-19.
Stay Safe...Stay Healthy...Wear a Mask...Practice Social Distancing – Protect everyone you can!
Who are Xplorers?
We're an organization of young women and men – ages 14-21 – who are interested in Emergency Medical Services! We also have members who are firefighters and those looking for law enforcement careers.
The Xplorers meet every Wednesday evening from 19:00-20:30 (7:00pm - 8:30pm) at Central Bucks EMS' station located at 455 East Street in Doylestown PA. Our weekly meetings can include training, guest speakers, trips to other facilities and so much more. And let's not forget, crashing cars in the parking lot!
Triage at a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI)
Trauma and Medical Care
And so much more!!!
We've had guest speakers including
Police: Keeping the Scene Secure
Canine Search and Rescue
First Aid Standbys
We've provided first aid standbys
KLJ 5K Race
What are the meetings like?
We believe in 'hands-on' training to keep things informative, active and fun! Of course we also provide talks on all kinds of medical and trauma topics to help the Xplorers have a better understanding of the medical issues they may come up against as they continue with their training.
Is there a fee to join?
Yes. It's only $25/year. This helps us offset the costs of uniforms, equipment, first aid supplies and food and drink for the occasional party!
You are provided with your first Xplorer T-shirt free with your membership!!!
Is prior experience or any CPR/First Aid certifications needed?
NO! You don't have to have any first aid experience, just a desire to learn, participate and have fun! We do offer certification classes in First Aid and Professional CPR a few times throughout the year. This also allows Xplorers to have real patient contact during our First Aid Standys.
