“It (the Visual Obscurity Exercise) was eye opening. The bunker gear was heavier than I expected. The tight spaces didn't bother me but it did give me a lot more respect for what type of conditions firefighters have to endure. Crawling around just using your hands to determine where you were going was interesting.”
- Jenny, Municipal Court
“Hands-on is always great! I loved using the jaws of life, pulling hose… Let's do it again!”
- Melanie, Human Resources
"I think this was a fabulous idea and a great opportunity for us to interact with employees we don't get to see. I hope we do this kind of thing again. Well done to all involved.”
- Cindy Rushefksy, Zone 2 Councilwoman
“I have been very much looking forward to this, and Wednesday's program gave every indication that CAmP is going to exceed my expectations. You all organized such a fun and interesting day, I am so excited for the next nine months.”
- Amanda, Fire Dept.
“…interesting stuff. It's amazing how much our jobs can overlap with different departments and we don't even realize it.”
- Errin, Public Works Stormwater
