Brooke Dyke, who was sponsored by the Maple Ridge Fire and Rescue, wanted to experience firefighting as a career option but also because she is looking for a career where she helps people.
Emma Larsen, was sponsored by Pitt Meadows Fire and Rescue, has confirmed her desire to become a firefighter.
During the week the girls learn a variety of tasks that include how to put on gear, using the jaws of life and hose-handling.
