March 13, 2014 kicked off the start of CampHERO in the City of Madison.  CampHERO is an all-girls camp that educates girls and young women on non-traditional career choices in the field of public safety.  The camp was started here in the City of Madison by our female public safety responders as a way to introduce girls to careers in police, fire, and emergency medicine.  Madison College and the Girl Scouts of America are two key sponsors of the program.  CampHERO offers programs for girls of all ages, from those entering kindergarten through recent graduating seniors in high school.  Participants get to explore their interests through hands-on activities, taught by actual Police Officers, Firefighters, EMT/Paramedics and Dispatchers!

You can check out CampHERO through a link on the City of Madison Fire Department website or visit  And don't forget to "like" them on Facebook as well!
