Hamilton’s first ever Camp FFIT (Female Firefighters in
Training) took place from October 16-18, 2015. The Association contributed
towards the cost of healthy lunches for the participants. 20 young women
aged 16-19 were introduced to all aspects of the fire service, from search and
rescue to fire prevention to health and fitness. Instructors included members
of Hamilton Fire, as well as firefighters from London, Kitchener, Brampton, and
Toronto. All feedback indicated that the participants enjoyed and were challenged
by the 3 days of training. The camp was a key opportunity to introduce
motivated young people in our community to our profession.
The Executive Committee would like to thank Pike Krpan for organzing this important event and all of the participants. Hope to see you all next year.
Fraternally, Executive Committee
