Yuma Fire Department Press Releases
Camp Inferno is an adventure immersion program allowing participants to experience a day in the life of women in fire and life-safety services. The goal of the program is to afford the opportunity for “real world” experience where young ladies are encouraged to challenge themselves on numerous physical and mental firefighter tasks in a controlled environment. Campers learn and demonstrate firefighting skills with fire department equipment and gear. They learn lifesaving emergency medical techniques including Continuous Chest Compression CPR, and basic first aid.
Camp Inferno (previously named Camp Fury) is in its 7th year and provides a hands-on learning environment at the Public Safety Training Facility, 3575 South Avenue 4E. Camp Inferno is a joint program between the City of Yuma’s Fire Department and Parks and Recreation Department.
Registration has been extended, and now closes on Friday, February 17th. Camp starts on Friday February 24th at 4:00 pm with a meet and greet, camp orientation and uniform fitting. It continues on Saturday February 25th starting at 08:00 am and concluding at 5:30 pm.
