The Sacramento Area Girls Fire Camp returns for its third year, introducing teenage girls to firefighting skills for two days.
Led by professional female firefighters, the camp runs Sept. 23 and 24 at the Sacramento Fire Academy in McClellan Park, according to the Sacramento Fire Department. Girls from grades 9 to 12 can join and learn search and rescue techniques, first-aid and CPR training, as well as hose and fire stream management.
“We believe that every young woman deserves the chance to explore any career path she’s passionate about, without limitations,” department Assistant Chief Kim Iannucci said in a news release. “The Sacramento Area Girls Fire Camp is a transformative experience that not only introduces girls to firefighting skills but also encourages them to view firefighting as a viable and rewarding career option.”
Breakfast, lunch and a camp shirt will be provided.
A maximum of 50 girls will be accepted into the program. You can sign up online.
