Preregistration is now open for the Camp 911 Emergency Preparedness Camp on Aug. 6-7 at Mercy EMS Facility on Airport Road. The camp is free to students who are completing or entering sixth grade in a Houghton or Keweenaw County school.

Camp 911 2013Aspirus Keweenaw, Portage Health and Mercy EMS put on the two-day camp. Preregistration is due by July 1. Space is limited and the camp traditionally fills with a waiting list, so interested participants are asked to preregister as soon as possible.

“This camp is put on by an incredible group of volunteers from our community and has evolved into an invaluable, multifaceted learning experience for our area youth,” ,” said event organizer Ann Clancy-Klemme, RN, EMT-P. “The lessons learned at this camp will benefit the campers, and their community, today and throughout their lifetime.”

The camp focuses on hands-on fun that will help the kids learn what to do if they’re the first one on the scene of an emergency. It also focuses on how to avoid high-risk behaviors so that campers don’t become the person needing the help.

Campers will receive free beverages, snacks, lunch, a bystander care kid, a Camp 911 t-shirt and a certificate of completion on the final day. For more information on the camp, and to preregister online, visit portagehealth.org/camp911.
