We are excited to share that Captain Shelly Carter, founder of Girls Future Firefighter Camp, is the recipient of the 2022 John P. Burke Community Hero Award.  In 2015, Carter founded the camp to introduce girls, ages 13-18, to careers in public safety, and specifically firefighting.  The interactive camp provides an introduction to many aspects of fire service, including first aid, pump and ladder operations, situation awareness, and arson investigation.
