This years President's Project is to support

North County Fire Protection District Fire Explorer Post

The North County Fire Protection District Fire Explorer Post is a youth oriented program directed at helping young adults who have an interest in the fire service. Young men and women between the ages of 15 and 20 are invited to become Fire Explorers with the North County Fire Protection District. Our program provides an opportunity for high school and college students to become familiar with career opportunities available in the fire service.

The program meets at the Headquarters Fire Station (Station 1) from the hours of 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Explorers are taught the basic skills of firefighting and first aid. Much of the training is hands-on and is supervised by the North County Fire Protection District personnel. Meetings also include public service projects and fund raising activities.

The first step is an introductory training program. Thereafter, Explorers are provided a base of knowledge and experience through classroom instruction, hands-on training and volunteer work. Fire Explorers assist with virtually all routine tasks in the community and around the fire station, including community relations, fire prevention, equipment and station maintenance and training. These qualities will benefit them not only in fire service careers, but also in all future endeavors.

Fire Explorers wear a uniform and are provided with helmets, turnouts and other safety clothing. They are welcome members of the fire stations where they volunteer. The program is designed to encourage and promote accountability, being safe, communication, teamwork, fitness and the development of leadership skills.

Last years President's Project...

supported Hidden Treasures.
A Non-Profit
thrift shop in Fallbrook

Hidden Treasures serves as a training facility to build job and independent living skills for adults with developmental disabilities (DD). The store is currently being sustained by profits from sales and by funding from another contributor. The funding from the contributor is coming to an end, so all contributions will be important.

Hidden Treasures opened in 2008 to aid an underserved population of DD adults. These are the people that have aged out of the system, but who still need assistance. People with DD receive training in work skills such as sweeping and mopping, interaction with the community, following through on tasks, working as a team, and more. These life skills will give them opportunities to work with the public, earn money, and strive forward to more independence.

The three main areas of formalized training are:

1. Foundational: learning to follow directions, how to clean, how to work together, how to follow through and more. These skills are necessary for taking care of themselves, the homes they live in, and their aging parents.

2. Independence: learning skills that make them independent workers and critical thinkers. They act like true employees taking directions from a manager and independently completing tasks they have been given. They also learn to evaluate the needs of the store and prioritize those tasks and complete them.

3. Customer Service: building their resume with the skills they learned that other businesses find valuable, such as interaction with customers, working a register, and making sales from beginning to end.

Hidden Treasures is in need of funding to pay the rent on their floor space. The space generates about $5,000-$6,000 a month in revenue. The loss of floor space would mean a cut in staff and a loss of that revenue resulting in a loss of programming for this much deserving population.
