The Washington County Fire Marshal and Sheriff’s Office along with Central EMS has combined forces to give local teenagers hand on training in part of Camp Rescue.
Teenagers have the opportunity to become CPR certified, learn basic first aid and get hands-on knowledge of how ambulances and helicopters work.
Throughout the week participants will engage in team-building exercises giving them a unique opportunity to peer into the emergency services career fields. Area professionals will provide instruction on topics from emergency dispatching to fire safety. Some of the information covered in the program is graphic and will require a high level of maturity and responsibility.
Camp Rescue is happening June 18 – 22 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and then 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 23 at the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
The cost of the week long camp is $50 and non-refundable.
Participants will receive a Camp Rescue T-shirt and lunch and snacks daily.
