July 11 through 14, the Highlands Museum & Discovery Center is again partnering with the Ashland Police Department, Ashland Fire Department, Boyd County EMS, Boyd County 911, and Boyd County Emergency Management to present First Responders Camp.  Aimed toward students entering 5th through 7th grades, it will give kids a fun and hands on glimpse of what it is like to be a first responder.  Staff from the departments have planned activities and exercises that demonstrate the skills and training necessary to work in these fields.  The camp will take place from 9am to 12pm at the Fire Training Drill Tower located on Front Street in Ashland.  The cost is $20 for the four day program, and, and registration is first come, first reserved.  The camp has a maximum capacity of 25 children and all children must be registered to participate.
