Grand Chute Fire Explorer Post 9764 was formed in March of 1988 to provide a learning environment that fosters teamwork, leadership, and builds friendships that will last a lifetime. The Grand Chute Fire Department acts as the sponsoring organization for the Post, while advisors from local fire departments and EMS services provide additional guidance.
Our Post is organized to suit the needs of the young adult; it consists of young men and women between the ages of 15 and 21 who are provided an opportunity to work closely with service professionals from local police, fire, and EMS agencies. Explorers participate in training exercises in the areas of fire suppression, self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), ice rescue, and many other emergency service disciplines.
These hands-on experiences provide Explorers with exposure to a variety of careers and a valuable network of community contacts. We are proud to have Explorers from Post 9764 move on to serve in local fire and EMS services, including: Grand Chute, Neenah-Menasha, Green Bay, Appleton, Hortonville, New London, Greenville, Ellington, Center, and several others.
Currently, the Post consists of 15 Explorers and 7 Advisors and meets every Tuesday from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Please contact Lt. Gretzinger for additional information.
