The Roseville Fire Department will begin its seventh annual Kids Fire Camp starting Monday, June 25, 2007.  Twenty four kids ages 11-14 will have the opportunity to experience six fun and exciting days learning all about the job of a firefighter.  The campers will be educated by firefighters in such areas as team building, CPR, first aid, water safety, rescue practices,  fire apparatus, and firefighting.
