Tours

 

Over the years, our Xplorers have provided dozens of tours for Boy/Girls Scouts and other youth organizations!

If you are interested in scheduling a tour for your group, we ask that you tour during one of our scheduled meetings which are on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. This way, we can provide:

 

  • Tours of the squad building including: offices, training rooms, ambulances and equipment
  • We can also setup 'first aid stations' where the kids can rotate through to learn and get hands-on practice of first aid skills
  • We end the tour with a Q&A session — which for some groups, are a requirement for their 'badge'


All tours need to be pre-arranged. By coming to one of our meetings at our squad, we're able to provide you with Xplorers to help with the tour as well as having access to all the necessary equipment and ambulances, to make it a fun and exciting evening! We meet at Central Bucks EMS which is located at 455 East Street in Doylestown.

 

PARKING: We are an active 911 squad, so we ask that you park on the 7/11 side of the building and walk around to the front. Please DO NOT park on the side that has the bay/garage doors. This allows our EMTs, Medics, Officers and Rigs to come and go between shifts. Unfortuantely, we've had issues in the past so we've had to make this a blanket policy. We ask you to advise everyone in your group to honor this request. Thank you!
