    For Explorers and cadets still in high school, what are your plans, by poll, for continuing your education?

    I voted and said that I am most likely to go to college right after high school. But it is between that and 1-2 years. Is that an ok choice or should I wait?

    Its really up to you and how soon you really want to get into the college life. I am going into the military and 1-2 years was the closest answer possible for me. I am going to remain a volly but will also hopefully go career too.

    I am going to the local community college to get an associates in fire science. Now a days you have to have a degree to move up in rank. Plus the classes are really interesting and the instructors are awesome.

    going to college and getting a degree and staying with my vollie dept is the way for me to go. I get the best of both worlds.

    how about you guys focus on graduating high school first, thats the most important thing. there will be PLENTY of time in the future to help your community. i know you want to do it now, but dont mess up in school, because it will ruin your future in the fire service too.
    These opinions and views are my own and in no way connected to my department. Stay safe brothers.
