Portland Metro Fire Camp is back for 2021!!!

We are so excited to be able to host our annual camp again this year. 

This two or three-day camp is an opportunity to experience the unique aspects of being a firefighter in an all-female environment. 

Work stations will include:

  • Search and rescue
  • Jaws of Life operation,
  • Climbing the aerial ladder
  • Fire hose operation
  • Forcing doors

Young women will also learn about nutrition, physical fitness, interview skills, and more.

Do you know any females ages 16-21 who could benefit from this empowering and life changing experience? Registration is now open at Portland Metro Fire Camp 

We have 2 FREE camps this year:

  •  July 30th, 31st August 1st
  • August 28th, 29th

Space is limited this year so please register early. See you on the drill grounds!

Women learn basic firefighting techniques at PMFC

Much thanks to IAFF Local 43 for their support and sponsorship of fire camp!
