Kern County Fire hosting women’s training camp | News – Bakersfield, California

Bakersfield, California 2022-05-23 17:50:00 –

The Kern County Fire Department is excited to announce the first Inspiring Women Through Opportunities training camp.

This event is a one-day training camp focused on the physical and mental applications needed to become a firefighter at the Kern County Fire Department. It took place on June 4th from 8am to 3pm at the Olive Drive Fire Training Facility on 5642 Victor Street in Bakersfield.

Firefighters discuss the physical aspects of their work, from the first physical fitness test they enter into a fire school to the feeling of spraying a fire hose.

We will also consider how to study the written exam part of entering the fire department. Finally, according to the KCFD news release, each “new employee” will have an exclusive hands-on experience with industry tools such as the Jaws of Life extraction tool.

The Kern County Fire Department will arrange for each potential firefighter to wear personal protective equipment (PPE). This allows you to know how you feel when you are in a “turnout” while carrying rescue equipment, ladders and hoses.

Participants must be at least 18 years old. This event is open to anyone who considers firefighting as a carrier. Space is limited and attendance confirmation is required. Registration will end on June 1st or when the camp is full.
