Our mission is to protect people and property by ensuring public safety and efficient fire protection and prevention and in support of this mission, we are excited to announce our first ever Junior Firefighter Camp.
This camp, which will be held on July 18th, 19th, and 20th from 9:30 am until noon, will be open to children ages 10-13 and who are residents of Rothesay or Quispamsis.
Children of this age range are beginning to learn how to be independent at home and begin coming home from school alone and/or spend increasing amounts of time unsupervised. Kitchen fires are the leading cause of home structure fires according to the National Fire Protection association so providing information at this age allows us to build safe habits and injury prevention.
Our Junior Firefighters can expect a new hands-on activity as well as life safety education from our HomeSafe program each day of camp. The title “Junior Firefighter” allows us to demonstrate some aspects of the firefighter profession while at the same time adding in safety information, i.e. cooking safety and home escape planning. This method of instruction will provide a fun learning environment for the students.
Space is limited and parents/guardians are required to complete a registration form by June 10th and submit it by email to Division Chief Mike Boyle at firstname.lastname@example.org or in person at 7 Campbell Drive. The form is available at Station 1 or by following this link: Registration Form
