HERo Girls Fire Camp
The fire agencies throughout Marin County, in partnership with Golden State Women in the Fire Service, have come together to host the first annual Girls Fire Camp. This free, two-day camp, instructed by Golden State Women in the Fire Service, volunteers, and the women throughout Marin County, encourages and empowers the campers to learn skills associated with the fire service, such as emergency medical services, extrication, ventilation, ladders, hose lays, and other essential skills. Held at Novato Fire District's Fire Station 62, campers ages 14-18 will get to learn from other females in the fire service and have the chance to prove to themselves that they, too, can become a firefighter.
