January RCR Explorer Post Profile.
Meet Makayla Yarbrough.
Makayla has been with the Rutherford County Rescue Explorer Post 911
(formally know as the Junior Rescue Program) for 2 years and she currently
hold the position of Lieutenant over the program.
Makayla a student at East High School has logged hundreds of hours in the
back of our ambulances as an observer and has proven herself to be a
valuable asset to the duty crews because she is always willing and ready to
help in anyway with the exception of having any patient contact.
Makayla knows our trucks and she knows what equipment the crews will need to
treat patients and she will make sure that the crews have what they need so
the duty crew can focus on treating the patient instead of running back to a
truck to get something extra that they may need during the call. No matter
if she running for equipment or carrying a first in bag out for the crews,
Makayla is always ready to help and ready to go on the next call.
Makayla’s goals are to become an EMT and then advance to, and to work as a
Paramedic while she attends college. Part of her goal is to also attend
Gardner Webb University to become a Nurse. Makayla’s long term goal is to
become a Flight Nurse for Regional One and to work in the field as a
Rutherford County Rescue’s goal is to help Makayla reach her goal to become
Paramedic and since she is a part of the Explorer Program she will receive
free training, experience and a free education to obtain the Paramedic
As Officers we are very proud to have Makayla as a part of our organization,
our team but more important our family.
