CFD Explorer Program


The Charlotte Fire Department Explorer Post was developed in 1982 with a primary purpose of providing fire service career awareness to young men and women.  Over the course of the last 22 years, nearly 500 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 you can be.
