Fire Chief Scott Goldstein was on hand at each of the three sessions to welcome the participants.
A total of 122 enthusiastic women participated in one of the three, 4 hour sessions. The participants were split into groups and rotated among a total of twelve stations that simulated various aspects of the skills needed to perform the duties of firefighter.
The twelve stations were:

6) Swift Water Rescue
7) Paramedicine/Mega Code

Each session culminated in a live demonstration of what an actual response to a building fire would look like.
