Altoona, WI - The Altoona Fire Department Explorer Post 800 and the Chippewa Valley Technical College Fire/Medic program has teamed up to present Girls on Fire - Rekindled.
This program started this evening at the Altoona Emergency Services Building located at 1904 Spooner Avenue. There are 15 girls, ages 14-17 enrolled in this program from all over the Chippewa Valley in this 4 day summer camp. Girls on Fire - Rekindled is the second year program, a continuation of last year’s camp Girls on Fire. This program was such a success last year that this year the students became members of the Altoona Fire Department Explorer Post 800, a division of the Boy Scouts of America, which provided more training opportunities. The second year program builds on basic skills and team building they learned from last year.
