2020 Virtual Portland Metro Fire Camp for Young Women
Jul 15, 2020 at 5:19 PM
Due to COVID-19, this summer's in-person fire camp has been canceled, but you can still take part in the experience at home.
Unfortunately, the 2020 Portland Metro Fire Camp for Young Women had to be canceled due to health concerns in the wake of the COVID-19 virus.
Women firefighters across the region have come together at Portland Fire & Rescue's training grounds for over 10 years (and more recently at Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue facilities as well) to give hands-on instruction that shows campers what a career in the fire service is all about. These instructors are disappointed not to be able to lead campers in person, but they have gathered together to create a virtual camp for prospective firefighters to use to learn about firefighting drills, ancillary career choices, station life, exercise routines, and more.
Please use and share with any future firefighters in your life.
