Fire Camp 2020 (Canceled)

Due to the precautions with COVID-19, Metro Fire has made the decision to cancel FIRE CAMP 2020. While we cannot predict what will happen with COVID-19, we want to ensure that we are taking all necessary precautions in helping eliminate the spread of this virus and unfortunately this means cancelling any large gatherings at this time including Fire Camp. That being said, we are excited and hopeful for FIRE CAMP 2021 and encourage you to check in with us next year for more details on how to have your 11, 12 or 13 year old son or daughter attend FIRE CAMP 2021.

ABOUT FIRE CAMP

Teamwork is an essential component in the Fire Service, as it is in life. Fire Camp is a community outreach program provided by the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District, which has positive effects at the individual, family, neighborhood, school, and community levels.

As Camp begins, kids are grouped into “strike teams” of 8 campers, mentored and supervised by a professional firefighters. As the week progresses the teams take on a character of their own as they learn about the job of a firefighter and experience such activities as: putting out a flammable liquid fire with a fire extinguisher, climbing a 105’ aerial ladder truck, developing the traditional skills of a bucket brigade and hand pumper crew, and learning life skills such as Hands Only CPR.
