A host of interested students recently signed up to participate in the first annual Emergency Services Camp to experience life an emergency official.

The camp, coordinated by the Nelson Police Department in conjunction with the Nelson RCMP, Nelson Fire Rescue, Nelson Search and Rescue, and BC Ambulance, involved students from LV Rogers Secondary, Salmo Secondary, JV Humphries Secondary in Castlegar, Mount Sentinal Secondary and Grand Forks Secondary. 

The camp is based on our previous successful years of Police Camp in Nelson. 

The students were involved in demonstrations from the various emergency services and completed the requirements for the police physical testing along with firearms and accident investigation. 

It was a very busy weekend and ended with a graduation where all students received a certificate of participation from camp coordinators.

Staff at Mallard’s Source for sports would like to salute everyone involved in the weekend camp with Team of the Week honours.

The success of the camp was not only in part to the dedication of the students but also numerous sponsors.

“We would like to thank our group of students who participated in our Camp for 2014, you were an awesome group,” said NPD Sergeant Janet Scott-Pryke.

“Our Emergency Services Camp is a true example of our communities working together to create opportunities and career ideas for our youth.”
