Portland Metro Fire Camp is back!!!

We are so excited to be able to host our annual young women’s fire camp again this year.

This two or three-day camp is an opportunity to experience the unique aspects of being a firefighter in an all-female environment. 

Work stations will include:

  • Search and rescue
  • Jaws of Life operation,
  • Climbing the aerial ladder
  • Fire hose operation
  • Forcing doors

Young women will also learn about nutrition, physical fitness, interview skills, and more.

Do you know any females ages 16-21 who could benefit from this empowering and life changing experience? Registration is now open at Portland Metro Fire Camp

We have 2 FREE camps this year:

  • July 30th, 31st August 1st
  • August 28th, 29th

Space is limited so please register early. See you on the drill grounds!


Much thanks to IAFF Local 43 for their support and sponsorship of fire camp!
