FAIRFIELD COUNTY — EMS Explorer Troop 1835 should be less tense because of two tents donated by the Fairfield County Genealogy Society to help the troop with its summer events.
Eddie Killian, president of Fairfield County Genealogy Society, donated the tents.
“They’ll be a big help,” said Jane Boyter, advisor for Troop 1835. “It’s so hot.”
Boyter said the tents will provide much needed refuge from the sweltering sun during fundraising and recruitment events for the EMS Explorer Troop, which was founded in September 2014.
Boyter said this will make fundraising and recruitment tolerable. Both are critical for the organization, which is open to aspiring emergency medical service workers between the ages of 14 and 20.
“It’s to teach them to see if they want a career in EMS,” Boyter said. “We’re trying to get more kids involved in the program.”
