Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a Firefighter?
Now you can find out! Our popular Firefighter Camp is a supervised 4-evening camp designed to give participants a taste of firefighting.
2012 Firefighter Camp
July 10, 17, 24 and 31 - 6:30 to 9:30 pm
At camp, participants will learn:
Basic fire behavior/tactics
Use of Extinguishers
SCBAs, supply lines & attack lines
Live fire (vehicle car prop) training
Search and rescue
How to use tools, ladders, ropes and knots
Under close supervision, participants will don protective gear and utilize fire apparatus/equipment to extinguish actual training fires. This experience will incorporate the same basic principles that the volunteer and career firefighters of Montgomery County follow every day as they protect our community.
The camp is hosted by the Wissahickon Fire Company and sponsored by Schneider Plumbing, Ambler Savings & Loan, Feast & Fancy catering, and B&Z Cabinets.
The camp is hosted by the Wissahickon Fire Company, and assisted by the North Penn, Flourtown and Centre Square Fire Companies.
