SAGINAW FIRE DEPARTMENT OFFERS D.I.C.E. TRAINING CAMP AUGUST 1-5, 2016
The Saginaw Fire Department is offering local students an exciting opportunity to participate in the Diversity Initiative Community Explorers (DICE) camp on August 1-5, 2016. The DICE Program was created by the Saginaw Fire Department in 2015 to educate youth within the City between the ages of 12-17 on the job requirements of a professional firefighter. The DICE Camp allows students to experience the day to day operations of the City’s Fire Department and develop a better understanding of the job requirements.
Those who attend the DICE camp will experience an exciting week of training in CPR/ First Aid, vehicle extrication, personal rescue, water safety and water rescue, rescue of a trapped occupant, physical fitness, and a tour of the MBS airport and their firefighting facilities. The week-long program ends with a special graduation ceremony at the Central Fire Station on Friday, August 5 at 11:00 a.m. to recognize the hard work and determination of the youth who have completed the program.
Fire Engineer Chedrick Greene oversees the DICE Camp and is excited to offer this special program once again this year to Saginaw youth. Greene stated, “The role of a firefighter can be very rigorous, physically demanding, fast, and intense. But it is also unbelievably rewarding and an excellent way to serve in our community. Our goal is to provide a better understanding as to what it takes to be a firefighter and the teamwork required to thrive in a group of men and women that put themselves on the line every day for their community.”
The Fire Department would like ALL area youth, boys and girls, to be aware of this once in a lifetime summer program designed to prepare our future fire safety officers for a career in firefighting.
