SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - FIRE CAMP is an excellent opportunity for our firefighters to help 11, 12 and 13-year-old kids build a sense of teamwork and responsibility while learning what it’s like to be a firefighter for Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District. On day one, campers will be organized into “strike teams,” which consist of eight campers who are mentored and supervised by two professional firefighters. As the week progresses, the teams take on a character of their own as they learn about the job of a firefighter and experience the following:

-Putting out a flammable liquid fire with a fire extinguisher
-Climbing a 105-foot aerial ladder truck
-Developing the traditional bucket brigade and hand pumper crew skills
-Learning life skills such as Hands-Only CPR
-Water rescue skills at SunSplash, and much more!
