Explorer Post 469 is designed for high school students between 14 and 20 years of age. The Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services Explorers Post was founded in 2001 with the goal to establish skills, knowledge, and experience for future careers in the fire and emergency services profession by participating in emergency calls and assisting in the community. Members of the Explorer Post attend weekly meetings at our Fire Training Complex and provide support at various fire department events. For more information regarding the Explorer program, contact Lt. Michael Sims by email at [email protected].
