Taylorville Fire Department Explorer Open House is Wednesday

The Taylorville Fire Department’s Explorer Open House is Wednesday night. The fire department will be welcoming those between ages 14 and 20 to the fire house starting at 6:30 p.m. on October 25.


The fire department is bringing back the Explorer program after a long recess to encourage young people to become firefighters and EMS personnel when they get older. The program combines classroom and hands-on training experience of what it’s like to be a firefighter, EMT, or paramedic.


Taylorville Assistant Fire Chief Andy Goodall says he and Chief Mike Crews were both a part of the Explorer program when they were teens. He is excited to bring back the program after a long hiatus.


For more information, you can contact the fire department at 824-2295 or by email at tfdexploring@gmail.com.
