On Friday, July 15, 2016, 26 young women between the ages of 14 and 19 years old graduated from the Sixth Annual Young Women's Fire Camp hosted by Eugene Springfield Fire at the Emergency Services Training Center in Eugene. This free 5-day camp began on Monday, July 11, 2016 and included firefighting, ladder climbing, rope rapelling, and providing simulated emergency medical care. The goals of Young Women's Fire Camp are to build leadership and team skills, instill confidence and provide an opportunity to try firefighting through a hands-on experience. Watch the video below to get a glimpse of their experience this year!
