Clay Fire Department hosts fire camps


Clay Fire Department is hosting a fire camp from June 17th until the 22nd.  It is a summer camp for children between the ages of ten and thirteen, who might want to experience and understand what a Firefighter / EMT does on a regular basis. 

Battalion Chief, Justin Stopczynski, hopes this summer camp might lead to some participants becoming future firefighters.  "We have taken a lot of the things that we are required to do or the training we receive,"  Stopczynski said, "we've shrunk it down to their level and allow these kids to get their hands on the equipment we use, skills that we practice, and on top of that, we are teaching them some life saving skills."

This is the 8th year for the Clay fire camps and they expect to have another camp next summer.  Twenty-seven kids are participating in this year's camp.
