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.
