VIDEO: For the first time, female high school students will have the chance to attend an all-girls first responder camp in Jackson. The three-day event will allow girls to get hands-on experience in a possible career with the fire department, police, and EMTs. This is the first time the city of Jackson will host an all-female camp. After being asked if the city has some sort of camp for girls, the fire department decided to take action and create one. They were hoping for at least twelve girls to sign up, and according to the assistant fire chief, they are expected to host around 30. This is not the first community to have a camp like this. Nearby, Washtenaw County has a blaze and blue all-female camp that spends a few days with fire and police.
