This weekend, take the rare opportunity to spend a day gaining hands-on experience in firefighting, EMS, and policing at CampHERO for Women!
This one-day workshop is open to any woman curious about exploring the protective services. Whether you’re considering a new career or just interested in trying something new, CampHERO for Women is the place to branch out in a safe and supportive environment.
Fire and EMS exercises include patient assessment, taking vitals, airway management, aerial ladder climb, forcible entry, and hose movement.
Over lunch, hear from representatives from police, fire, and EMS and ask any questions you have about these exciting careers! Celebrate your achievements at an informal happy hour following the event.
The Madison Fire Department is currently accepting applications for new firefighters. If you’re thinking of applying, CampHERO for Women is a great opportunity to experience a few activities, try on gear, and ask questions about the job.
