What Is Camp 911?

Camp 911 is a two-day long camp at Mercy EMS, that is designed to give children entering sixth grade the skills, abilities, and most importantly the confidence to act in case of an emergency. These kids will have the opportunity to learn lifesaving emergency care such as CPR, stop the bleed, choking interventions, and much more! We hope with the information and skills provided to the students that they will be able to act in case of an emergency as well as pass on this information to family and friends.

This is a FREE event (Register Online) to the campers as it is sponsored by many different local organizations, emergency agencies, and donations from local businesses. Space is limited to the event and participants will be selected at random after the registration closes.

Day One

Day one of the camp will kick off with a car extrication demo where campers will get an up-close demonstration on the steps taken to extricate a patient from a crashed vehicle. (This is just a demonstration as the patient in the vehicle is not actually injured). Following the demonstration the campers will get to tour all of the emergency vehicles involved with the demonstration as well as many different types of emergency vehicles such as: US Coast Guard boat, Bootjack Fire and Rescue Hovercraft, Houghton County Sheriff Mobile Command Center, multiple different fire trucks, and much more! This is a great time for the campers to get a hands on feel for items in these vehicles and ask questions.

Following the vehicle tours students will learn injury prevention and what to do in cases of certain emergencies. This is a very brief description of day one as the students will receive a lot of very beneficial information this day.

Also, during day one we will have a helicopter landing, weather dependent, on site at Mercy EMS.

Day Two

Day two will be made up of many different topics such as fire safety which will feature a Smoke House where the campers will be placed in a camper that fills with smoke (don’t worry it is just vegetable oil) to simulate what steps to take if you ever find yourself trapped in room filling with smoke. The campers will then be sent home with a fire prevention plan to talk about with their family.

The rest of the day consists of internet safety, wilderness survival, as well as multiple different stations where the campers will have to put the information and skills they have been taught to the test with different emergency scenarios. As stated above, this is a very brief description of day two as there is much more that goes on. Full schedule of events will be sent out to campers after registration.

To conclude the camp, we will have the campers run through our Rescue Relay which family members are encouraged to come watch!

All campers will receive a t-shirt, water bottle, and bystander care kit.
