Camp Courage 2013 – Inspiring Young Women to Consider a Career in First Response
We were proud and pleased to participate in Camp Courage 2013 last week in Halifax. The camp introduces young women aged 15 - 19 to careers as first responders including paramedics, police officers, and firefighters. Young women leave with a sense of empowerment and the confidence to believe they can achieve any goal, career or dream they want.
Seventeen EHS paramedics volunteered their time to facilitate a two-day paramedic during the week long Camp Courage this year. They shared knowledge, inspired young women to consider paramedicine as a rewarding career and represented EHS in the best light.
