Stay Safe...Stay Healthy...Wear a Mask...Practice Social Distancing – Protect everyone you can!

Who are Xplorers?

 

We're an organization of youths ages 14-21 who are interested in learning about EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES! We also have members who are firefighters and those looking for law enforcement careers.

 

We learn about the body and its systems then practice medical and trauma related emergencies through hands-on training including patient assessment, care and transport!

The Xplorers meet every Wednesday evening from 19:00-20:30 (7:00pm - 8:30pm) at Central Bucks EMS' Warminster station located at 555 Evergreen Avenue in Warminster 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!

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.
