Fire and Rescue recruits start Monday
The group of men graduated on Nov. 16 from an 18-week academy. During this program, the students learned what they’ll need for the job: Firefighter I&II, EMT-B, Hazardous Material Operations, Mayday Firefighter Down, Vehicle Awareness and Operations and EVOC. The graduation ceremony was held at Stafford Senior High School on Wednesday evening, and Marla Decker, Virginia secretary of public safety, was the guest speaker.
