Nine Fire Recruits Graduate  

From State Fire Academy

On Friday, November 14, 2008, our nine newest rookie firefighters

graduated from the Tennessee Fire and Codes Enforcement Academy

in Bell Buckle, Tennessee.

They completed a 10-week resident course which taught them basic

firefighting skills.  They have returned to the department and are

currently going through their medical training and will

be placed on shift duty on November 28, 2008.
