The Charlotte Fire Department
Explorer Post will host its 37th annual open house on Saturday
September 7, 2019; its primary purpose is providing fire service career
awareness to young men and women. Nearly 700 young adults have enjoyed
the memorable experience of learning what it takes to become a firefighter.
This hands-on experience is accomplished through a program that utilizes
classroom lectures, practical applications, and opportunities to ride along
with fire crews. Our program seeks to instill in each Explorer member the
importance of obtaining a college education, being a responsible citizen, and
most of all striving to be the best that they can be.
