SHILOH – Shiloh trustees received a special visit at their July board meeting from the O’Fallon-Shiloh EMS Explorers.
Paramedic Tim McClain, lead trainer for the Explorers, told the trustees about the teens in the program and what the Explorers do.
“It gives these guys the opportunity at a young age to start a career path while they’re still in high school,” McClain said. The teens, which range in ages and come from towns all over the Metro East, go out on life-saving calls with the EMS team.
“These young ladies and men are getting a chance to see this stuff first hand, and decide if that’s what they want to do as they get older for a career path,” he continued.
