Portland Metro Fire Camp is planning for 2023!

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

This 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 16-22 who could benefit from this empowering and life changing experience?  Registration is now live!
