CFD In the Community

The Charlotte Fire Department Explorer Post will host its 38th annual open house on Saturday September 5, 2020 ; 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.

Please register your child for the open house:
