Cobb County, GA Explorer Post
Cobb Fire is extending an invitation to young people between the ages of 14 and 20 to join The Cobb Fire Explorer Post #33. The program is being offered in conjunction with Chattahoochee Technical College, with meetings to be held on Thursdays at 6:30 pm in the classroom next to the Fire Training Tower on Valor Drive.
The mission of the Cobb County Fire Explorer Program is to provide a safe learning environment where youth can become responsible individuals by teaching diversity, positive character traits, career development, leadership, and life skills so they can make ethical choices and achieve their full potential. The Explorer Program is a win-win for the Department and the students, and can be a useful recruiting tool for those interested in the Emergency Services profession.
The program is endorsed by International Association of Fire Chiefs, National Volunteer Fire Council, U.S. Fire Administration National Fire Academy, and local fire authorities. Posts are organized around interests in Fire/Emergency Services, Civil Defense, First Aid/Ambulance Corps, Firefighting, Res¬cue Services, Paramedic, EMT, and Volunteer Firefighting. In odd-numbered years, the National Fire/Emergency Services Exploring committee conducts an Explorers conference, which is open to all Fire/Emergency Services Explorers and Post Advisors.
Interested candidates can contact Training at 770-590-5661, or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org."Beer comes in bottles. Fish come in tanks. Air comes in cylinders!"
