HERricane Florida (Summer Camp for Girls 13-17) @ Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

This summer, a big storm is going to make “landfall” in Leon County and it’s already got a name: HERricane Florida! HERricane Florida is a one-of-a-kind program designed to encourage young women, ages 13-17, to explore careers in emergency management and allied fields. The aim for this program is to grow and support tomorrow’s emergency managers, public health nurses, meteorologists, and public servants so that the future has a team that can handle hurricanes, wildfires or public health emergencies.

HERricane Florida is a one week “summer day camp”, where each day is jam-packed with activities that enrich our girls’ understanding of community and professionalism while giving them actual skills and certifications so they can find high quality jobs. Attendees will learn skills like CPR and how to use a fire extinguisher, as well as leadership and networking. The original program, HERricane Arlington, was created in 2016 by the Arlington Emergency Management Agency in Virginia. HERricane Florida is brought to you by the Florida Division of Emergency and Leon County Emergency Management, with strong support from Arlington Emergency Management.
