Wisconsin READY Camp empowers
Youth to be more resilient in emergencies
CAMP DOUGLAS — Inch by inch, a group of teens pulled and raised a body from the top of a building. A few yards away, another group of aspiring first responders helped firefighters prop up a vehicle on its side. These skills were just some of the lessons kids from around the country learned at the Responding to Emergencies and Disasters with Youth (READY) Camp, held this month at Wisconsin Emergency Management’s Regional Emergency All-Climate Training Center in Camp Douglas.
