INTRODUCTION

Girls On Fire is a not-for-profit organisation that has teamed up with several other agencies, including emergency services and the YMCA, to run its inaugural, seven-day Girls Fire & Emergency Services Camp at the YMCA Camp Yarramundi in September this year.

The aim of the camp is to teach young women (aged 14 to 18) firefighting and emergency services skills, increase their confidence and resilience, encourage problem-solving, teamwork and leadership, and introduce them to the possibility of a career in the fire and emergency services (the role of a firefighter has changed significantly over the past few years).
