Vaughan Fire & Rescue Service (VFRS) recently received a $10,000 grant from TransCanada for its firefighter camp for young women ages 15 to 18 years.

VFRS, in partnership with the City of Vaughan, held its second annual female firefighter camp at the Vaughan Joint Operations Centre in summer 2018.
Under the watchful eye of instructors, the teens learned some of the skillsets required to be a firefighter.
