The mission of the Columbia Fire Departments Explorer Post is to enable young men and women to become more aware of the fire fighting profession through interaction with firefighters, simulated emergency activities and ongoing education. Young people involved in this program become more aware of the many areas of interest in emergency services while at the same time serving as role models to their peers and becoming more active in their communities.
Attention Boys and Girls, 14-21 Years Old
The Columbia Fire Department and Columbia Professional Fire Fighters Association invite you to join the CFD Emergency Services Explorer Post. If you would like to learn about the fire service, make new friends, and have fun, you need to become an Explorer.
Most of the time there is a waiting list to join as interest is high and program size is limited to allow for a lower instructor to student ratio and an enhanced learning environment. However, we continuously take applications to fill positions as they become available. If you are interested call us at 573-874-7391 for more information on how to apply.
