Teamwork is an essential component in the Fire Service, as it is in life. Fire Camp is a community outreach program provided by the East Carnegie Fire Department, which can have a positive effect at the individual, family, neighborhood, school, and community levels.
The benefits of community outreach programs such as this one have both short and long-term impacts. Fire Camp may encourage a spark (no pun intended) in a camper to become a firefighter. If so, we have recruited for the future. Hopefully at the end of the day, the Camp will bring together an entire family around the participant’s daily activities as mom and dad listen to the youth’s narration of the day’s events.
FIRE CAMP is a full day of experiencing and learning all about the job of a firefighter.
FIRE CAMP is team work, water safety, rescue practices, firefighting, first aid and more.
