Metro Fire’s FIRE CAMP Interest List Opens April 1, 2024

FIRE CAMP is an excellent opportunity for our firefighters to help 11, 12 and 13-year-old kids build a sense of teamwork and responsibility while learning what it’s like to be a firefighter for Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District. On day one, campers will be organized into "strike teams," which consist of 8 campers who are mentored and supervised by two 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 the following:


  1. Putting out a flammable liquid fire with a fire extinguisher
  2. Climbing a 105-foot aerial ladder truck
  3. Developing the traditional bucket brigade and hand pumper crew skills
  4. Learning life skills such as Hands-Only CPR
  5. Water rescue skills at SunSplash, and much more!


FIRE CAMP will be held on June 25-28 and occurs at Fire Station 21, 7641 Greenback Lane, Citrus Heights, 95610. Cost is $125 and campers will rely on a parent or guardian for daily transportation.
