In coalition with the Ashland Fire Department and the Ashland Board of Selectmen, Camp Bailout Summer Program will be held July 8 through 12, 2019.

Camp Bailout is a week long program designed to educate young women (for ages 14-19) on firefighting and emergency service skills, in a dynamic and fun environment. The week long curriculum is interactive and physically challenging, where the girls will gain strength and knowledge while building confidence and leadership skills.

During the week, the girls will be taught basic skills in: Rappelling from the training tower; motor vehicle extrication with the Jaws of Life, search and rescue, CPR, first aid, live fire extinguishment and much, much more.

Campers should possess a positive attitude, be in good physical conditioning and be prepared to have fun!

The MCVFA provides training and education programs around the state on a variety of topics. The purpose of the MCVFA Training Committee is threefold. First, the committee promotes the MCVFA as the voice of the call/volunteer fire and EMT service in Massachusetts. The second purpose is to increase the membership of MCVFA. The final and most important purpose are to reduce the number of injuries and deaths of fire and EMS responders by providing training in safety and other fire and EMS related topics. This training takes place via workshops and programs covering a wide range of fields: administration, chaplains, health and wellness, Haz-Mat and emergency response.

The committee provides information to fire and EMS personnel in a timely, convenient and cost-effective manner. The committee strives to place classes near all call/volunteer firefighters and EMT’s, enabling the maximum amount of people to attend. Each year new workshops and programs are added, with constant critiques and reviews to discover what the volunteer fire and EMS services are looking for in training. The MCVFA organizes classes each year with many in attendance.
