    Yes, many.
    27.50%
    11
    Yes, but very few.
    37.50%
    15
    No, encourage it but no members.
    20.00%
    8
    No, we don't encourage females.

    it would be very distub\rbing to see if anyone voted that they dont encourage it....

          out of 12 explorers there are 4 girls and 8 guys. In the dept. its self with the fire fighters out of the 60-70 vollies 10-15 or them are females. I have no problem with girls being in the explorer post as long as the want to learn and listen to their offices and the old guys/gals and listen to the firefighters same goes for the guys.

            we dont have any female juniors, but if a female wanted to join the dept as a junior we would welcome her like any other member.

              We have one, another female was going to join. But timing issues went against her. We totally encourage females, males, anyone.

                We have 1 female explorer in my full-time department (chief's daughter), and a couple in my part time/call department.

                      Hey now! It's not my fault I keep scaring off all the guys... I can't help it if they're intimidated by my womanly firefighting skills . We used to have a guy junior, come to think of it.... actually, I think he's still on the roster, but I haven't seen him for more than a year. See, they all just buggered off when I showed up .

                        i just wanted to tell why i said we dont encourage female juniors, its not that we dont encourage just females. currently we arent really looking for more members. we are out of gear, actually we just had three new guys join so the chief and two asst. chiefs are getting new gear and their old gear will go to the new guys. if a girl was actually interested in joining the juniors, and we had gear we would at least think about it. we do have women on the fd as first responders only. they dont come to meetings and we dont intent on having them respond to any fires unless its a structure fire, or a hot day with an extended op's period.

                          you dont encourge them joining because you wouldnt have gear for them?? dont u think that you could go some place else to look for gear? we have 5 guys as explorers, 2 have gear... so we shouldnt have the other 3 because they dont have gear?

                            if they r wanting to join for the right reason we would somehow accomodate them. but we have alot of guys on the dept that dont show up for calls that we are finally giving away there gear to other peeps. plus our dept and all the other depts around here are pretty maxed out on gear and money.

                              firefighterox I understand your reasoning but I know its not your fault and no one in this fourm should jump all over him for saying what he has said on here. I also taking it that it wasn't the explorers in firefighterox post that doesnt want girls. It more then likey the leaders saying sorry we dont have the gear to protect you from the hazards that are at drills and calls that is why we cant let you join.

                              so we shouldnt have the other 3 because they dont have gear?
                              you should let them stay but by getting mad at firefighterox wont do anything for you other then cause problems for the explorers and the Jrs. with the web team and the rest of the members if they still read this stuff we post over hear anymore. I have a question though you have 3 guys with out gear do they help in drills and at calls or no?
