HERricane Returns! Free Camp for Girls Back in Philly – Jun 15-17

Posted by City of Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management on May 17, 2022

After a very successful launch of the first-ever HERricane Program in Philadelphia last year, it’s back and ready to engage with the future of emergency management, girls ages 16-19 to provide them with hands-on experience in this public safety field. Women are underrepresented in Emergency Management but make up a disproportionate amount of disaster victims.

This year’s program once again plans to disrupt this statistic and provide girls with the skills and confidence they need to be tomorrow’s emergency managers. HERricane Philadelphia will take place in Center City with visits to OEM’s and FEMA’s emergency operation centers and run from Wednesday, June 15th through Friday, June 17th, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

The HERricane Philadelphia Experience is intended to be accessible to all young women and will be held free of charge to the participants, however space is limited.
