The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District is excited to be a part of the First Annual Silver State Women in Fire Female Firefighter Training Day, just two days away!

We invite our media partners to join us on Saturday, June 29th, at Carson City Fire Station 52 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm for an exciting and informative event designed to give females that are interested in learning about the fire service, an in-depth perspective with hands-on training learning the ropes alongside men and women from 11 Northern Nevada agencies. Talk with participants, trainers, and organizers to see firsthand how these women are igniting their passion for a career in the fire service.

This free event, for women 17 years of age and older, is structured like a day in a fire suppression academy.

The training day includes physical fitness exercises, hands-on training, and classroom presentations. Participants will have the opportunity for a Q&A session with current and retired female firefighters, providing invaluable insights and inspiration.

Event Highlights:

  • Hands-on training exercises led by seasoned firefighters from 11 Northern Nevada agencies
  • Real-life scenario simulations to give a taste of the firefighting experience
  • Networking opportunities that foster camaraderie and support
  • Inspirational stories from women who are already blazing trails in their firefighting careers

This event is a unique opportunity to showcase the critical role women play in the fire service and encourage more women to consider this rewarding career path.
