Description

After five months of coursework and hands-on training, eight recruits graduated from Capital City Fire/Rescue Fire Academy and became certified firefighters Monday night.

The recruits were feted at a ceremony at Glacier Station once they were sworn in by CCFR Chief Richard Etheridge.

“Congratulations,” Etheridge said in his remarks. “This is the very first step on a long journey. Who knows where this journey is going to take you — the sky’s the limit.”
