Applications are being accepted for Portland Metro Fire Camp for those who identify as female ages 16 to 20. This camp is an all-encompassing introduction to a rewarding profession. The camp is designed to instill confidence while building leadership and team skills.

Participants will learn what it takes to be a firefighter while completing hands-on training in hose and ladder skills, vehicle extrication, search and rescue, ropes and knots, live-fire operations, aerial ladder climbs, forcible entry, emergency medical skills, and other firefighting tasks.

They will also receive instruction from professional female firefighters from multiple agencies on how to prepare for interviews and gain insight on what it is like to have a career in the fire service as well as the importance of good nutrition and physical fitness.

This free fire camp will be offered twice this summer on two weekends.

The first camp will be held July 30, July 31, and August 1 at TVF&R’s Training Center, 12400 SW Tonquin Road, in Sherwood. Applications will be accepted for this camp through June 30.

The second camp will take place August 28 and 29 at the Portland Fire & Rescue Training Center, 4800 NE 122nd Ave., in Portland. The deadline to apply for this camp is July 30.
