CAMP 911 IS COMPLETED FOR 2019. SEE YOU IN 2020!
Camp 911 is an educational safety camp designed for children in Hancock County and the City of Findlay entering Kindergarten to learn about a variety of age-appropriate safety topics.
Hanco EMS, Findlay Fire Department, Findlay Police Department, and the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office collaborated to make Camp 911 a reality. After the loss of the Safety Town program, these first responders knew that the community was missing a valuable resource. Together they held the first camp in the summer of 2018 at Fire Station 4, with 50 children from Hancock County participating.
The 2019 Camp 911 will have some big changes to the program. With the help of Hancock Leadership class of 2019, we are able to extend our outreach to 200 students and offer a 5-day camp with morning and afternoon sessions.
At Camp 911 children will have the opportunity to interact directly with first responders. They will learn different safety lessons, such as bike safety, stranger danger and so much more. They will grow in their independence as they experience camp through hands-on activities. They will also have a ton of fun with all the different topics to explore.
