First Alarm Fire Camp

Every year, the St. Florian's Brigade holds a free one-day camp for 8- to 14-year-olds who are interested in learning more about the fire service and what it takes to become a firefighter. The camp is held on two separate days based on age range: ages 8 to 11 and ages 12 to 14.

The program focuses on team building, and includes a burn demo, CPR training, obstacle courses, running emergency scenarios, and much more. Our goal is that each camper walks away empowered with life skills and professional guidance that encourages them to pursue a career in public safety.
