OVERVIEW

Group Learning for Outgoing Women (GLOW) is for women age 17 years and older where they learn about the fire service and have fun. Participants leave the camp feeling confident to tackle a wide array of challenges. GLOW empowers and builds confidence
through experiences in team-building and physical ability. It in-
creases self-sufficiency, not only as individuals but, also as potential future firefighters.

Camp GLOW will empower and build confidence in women through personal experiences in team-building and physical ability, to increase self-sufficiency, not only as women but also as potential future firefighters. The weeklong fire camp will be strenuous, demanding and exciting series of activities; many of them modeled on what real firefighters go through during training. Women will have a chance to use real firefighting equipment under the supervision of active female firefighters. Exercises, classes and activities include introduction to the firefighter's personal protective equipment, use of tools and ladders, search and rescue, and live fire training.

This five day camp covers the following topics:

• Orientation to the Fire Camp
• SCBA
• Fire Extinguishers, Hoses
• Career Awarenessand Ladders
• Scenarios/Demonstration Day
