Girls to the Rescue @ Local 865 Fireman’s Camp
May 23 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

Rescheduling for Fall 2015!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, City of Asheville Fire Department is rescheduling this event. As soon as a date is determined, it will be updated on this website. 

Usually Girl Scouts learn to build fires. What do you do when it gets out of hand? Make sure you are a part of this exciting experience designed to help girls develop courage, confidence and build character while introducing them to a rescue career field. Try your hand at first aid skills, learn what happens when you call 911 and discover ways to prevent fires. Can you manage a firefighting hose? Try it out. Girls need to know they are smart enough, strong enough and brave enough to pursue a career as a firefighter. Only 3.4% of fire professionals are female. Work side by side with a firefighting professional. Have fun trying to beat that firefighter in the water brigade relay! Firefighters work with water on a daily basis. You might want to bring a change of clothes for the end of the day – there is the possibility of getting wet. The event is sponsored by the City of Asheville Fire Department.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: May 7, 2015

GIRL FEE: $5

BRING: water bottle, tennis shoes or closed toe shoes, appropriate clothes for the weather, change of clothes in case you get wet
