The Explorer-Cadet Program has been designed to provide students with the opportunity to get hands-on experience and knowledge valuable in today's fire service. Plus the program gives young people an up-close look at the fire service to help them decide if this is a career for them.

The Explorer Advisory Board has determined the following three main programs for the Explorer-Cadets based on level of knowledge and interest: Basic, Advanced, and Officer.
