Interested in becoming a first responder? Get involved with the Alexandria Fire Department's Teenage Explorer Program. If you are 14 to 20 years old and interested in learning about becoming a firefighter, paramedic, EMT, physician, nurse or member of the U.S. military, consider joining the Explorer Program.
The group meets three times a month – on the first Saturday and second Tuesday of the month – and is flexible with other extracurricular activities. After meeting certain requirements, participants in this program are eligible to ride along with Alexandria Fire Department trucks, engines, and ambulances to gain firsthand experience as a first responder.
