Gateway Technical College is hosting a new Junior EMS/Fire Summer Camp from June 20 through 22. Gateway’s three-day schedule allows for flexibility for students. Want to know what it’s like to be a firefighter or an EMT? Embark on this new opportunity to learn and use the skills of this trade. Get the chance to interact with axes, hoses, and extrication equipment.
Gateway Technical College’s newest summer camp will provide students in grades 9 through 12 with the opportunity to receive hands-on training and experience. This program will offer an inside look at what firefighters and EMTs do each and every day.
This three-day camp will show attendees what it’s like to wear turnout gear, participate in simulating a rescue, learn about a fire engine and ambulance, see how a fire extinguisher is used, as well as forcible entry tools. This includes axes, pry bars and the “Jaws of Life.”
