History of Post 215
Explorer Post 215 was originally established in March of 1988 as the result of a partnership between Boy Scouts of America and Plano Fire-Rescue with the goal of providing young men and women an opportunity to learn about the fire service while providing service to the community. In 1992 the partnership changed slightly as the Exploring Program transitioned under Learning For Life (a subsidiary of the Boy Scouts of America). Over the years the Post has won a variety of accolades for both its individual efforts here in Plano as well as in comparison with other Posts for its member's performance at competitive events. Falling under the Community Outreach and Education section, Post 215 has played and will continue to play, an integral part of community fire safety and education to the citizens and visitors of Plano. Due to cuts in Fire- Rescue’s staff in 2009, the Post took a five-year hiatus from 2009 to 2014. In October 2014 the Post re-chartered with eleven Explorers and four Advisors. In 2019 it will have seventeen Explorers and twelve Advisors on the roster.
