MFD CampHERO volunteersCampHERO, a summer camp that introduces girls to the protective services, is about to enter its sixth year! The Madison Fire Department has been a proud sponsor of CampHERO since its inception. 61 of our employees have volunteered for CampHERO, and 7 serve on the CampHERO leadership team.

Volunteers are the bedrock of CampHERO, and more volunteers are needed! You can dedicate as much time as you wish — a couple hours or a couple weeks — and there are a variety of jobs to choose from.

Visit the “Volunteer” page on the CampHERO website to learn more, and to lend a helping hand!

By being a part of CampHERO, you get to help girls develop courage, gain confidence, and build character while they gain hands-on experience taught by police officers, firefighters, EMT/Paramedics, and dispatchers. Plus you’ll work alongside a number of our own dedicated volunteers from the Madison Fire Department!
