Welcome to Huntington Beach Search & Rescue
Huntington Beach Search and Rescue Explorer Post #563 is chartered by the Orange County Council of the Boy Scouts of America / Learning for Life and sponsored by the Huntington Beach Police and Fire Departments. It is a co-ed youth program designed to expose high school and college age men and women to careers in the emergency services field. It is open to ages 14 to 17 for new members, with a maximum age of 21 for participation.
Explorer Post # 563 was founded in 1962 as a Law Enforcement Explorer Post. Over the years it has developed into one of the premier Explorer Posts in Orange County. In 1982 the post took on a new challenge by expanding its focus to include firefighting exploring and becoming part of the Search and Rescue Explorer Program.
