Do you know a young woman between the age of 16 and 19 who is interested in learning what being a firefighter is all about?

Portland Fire & Rescue, in partnership with other metro-area fire agencies, is offering a three-day fire training camp specifically for young women ages 16 to 19.  Fire Camp 2012 will be held June 22, 23, & 24, 2012 at Portland Fire & Rescue's Training Center located at 4800 NE 122nd Avenue in Portland, Oregon.

The goals of Fire Camp are to instill confidence, build leadership and team skills in young women, and to provide an opportunity to try firefighting through hands-on training.  Fire Camp will be taught and supervised by women firefighters from the Portland metro area.

Fire Camp participants will be involved in hands-on activities, including:

  • Orientation and Practical Exercises: Hydrant and hose evolutions
  • Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA): Participants will practice exercise drills, become familiar with SCBA, and learn search and rescue techniques using the SCBA
  • High Angle Rescue and Confined Space: Participants will learn high angle rescue techniques and simulate a confined space rescue
  • Vehicle Extrication and Medical Response: Participants will work on team building exercises, visit a fire station, become familiar with different firefighting equipment and apparatus, and participate in vehicle extrication and medical response

Fire Camp 2012 will be held at no cost to participants.  This is a non-residential camp and participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp.  Applications for Fire Camp 2012 will be accepted now through May 23, 2012.  Interested applicants can get more information and submit an application online at http://www.portlandonline.com/fire/firecamp.
