About Camp 9-1-1

Emergent Health Partners'  Camp 9-1-1 is a free, two day, first aid and safety camp for kids ages 8 - 12 run by EMTs and Paramedics from your local ambulance service.

  • Each camp is two days long, running from 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
  • Camps are held at locations throughout our service area.
  • Campers who have not attended in the past, and live within our service area are given preference for camp spots. Not sure if you live in our service area? Send us an email - camp911@emergenthealth.org.

 

What do Campers learn?

The goal of Camp 9-1-1 is that participants feel more knowledgeable and prepared to respond to common emergencies. We believe that even children can save a life and that starting First Aid training in childhood leads to a more prepared community. To meet this goal, campers will be offered training in:
  • Hands-Only CPR and AED use
  • Basic first aid skills, including how to stop a bleed
  • How to make a first aid kit
  • Choking response, including abdominal thrusts (Heimlich maneuver)
  • Basic water and bike safety
  • Public safety in your community - including EMS, fire, police, and specialty teams

If my child has attended Camp 9-1-1 in the past, can they attend again?

In order to give as many children as possible access to this camp, priority is given to new campers. If your child has attended in the past they will be placed on a waitlist and given a spot based on availability.
 

When will I be notified if my child got a waitlist spot?
