39 HRFE Volunteer trainees graduate into service


Information via the HRFE

“Thirty-nine firefigh­ter recruits have be­en hard at work trai­ning over the past three months, and have now been rew­arded with their bla­ck helmets


This class includes 21 firefighters who will move into Stati­on 4 (Lady Hammond Road), as the first cohort of volunteers to take residence in a downtown fire sta­tion.


Twelve other stations across the municip­ality will also see new recruits join th­eir ranks this week.

The new firefighters have had to endure a battery of testing, training, and other rigorous procedures with exacting stan­dards in order to su­ccessfully join HRFE.


The in-field training began in March and wraps up with the graduati­on. “
