Camp F.I.R.E.S. (Females In Rescue Emergency Services) is an exciting new program geared specifically to expose females to problem solving skills, basic firefighting skills, emergency medical skills, CPR, and leadership. Program Coordinator, and SFMD Captain/Paramedic Amy Brooks shared her optimism about this new program, “We are excited about this opportunity for girls and women in our community to be exposed to fire and emergency medical services and to SFMD…Women shouldn’t be discouraged or think they can’t do very well as a firefighter – as the nature of what we do and how we do it has evolved, the need for more female firefighters is evident.”
