Rescue Divas

Rescue Divas is a hands-on, residential summer camp designed for middle school girls interested in exploring careers in emergency medicine. Throughout the week, girls participate in exploratory, hands-on activities that focus on a variety of skills needed in emergency medicine careers.The camp includes off-site tours of ambulance halls, police dispatch centers, firehouses, and hospital emergency rooms. Campers also learn from a Search and Rescue mission, and earn certifications in first aid, CPR, and AED use. The idea was developed by a team at Northwestern Wisconsin CEP, and received funding from the Wisconsin Office of Rural Health to implement the project. Rescue Divas aims at increasing the pipeline of future EMTs, particularly for women, who are underrepresented in emergency medicine. Communities can implement their own Rescue Divas program using guidance from our office.
