The Sacramento Fire Department will host its third annual Sacramento Area Girls Fire Camp on Oct. 8-9.
Designed for teens grades 9 through 12, the two-day event at the Sacramento Fire Academy in McClellan Park is led by professional women firefighters and is free to attend.
Campers will be introduced to firefighting skills such as search and rescue, first-aid CPR and hose and fire stream management. The camp also offers leadership training and team-building activities.
“We are beyond excited for the opportunity to show these young people what their future can be if they dare to dream,” said Sacramento Fire Assistant Chief Kim Iannucci. “Having them interact with female firefighters empowers them to realize that firefighting is a career option for them.”
Breakfast, lunch and a camp T-shirt will be provided at the event.
The Sacramento Fire Department employs an inclusive definition of “girls” to include female-identifying, transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals.
Early registration is recommended as space is limited.
