Firefighter Graduation

Fifteen San Angelo Fire Department cadets will formally graduate from the academy at a ceremony at 7 p.m. Friday, April 28th, at the McNease Convention Center. The public is invited. The ceremony marks the end of 16 months of training for the recruits, during which they underwent the equivalent of four years of college paramedic training at Howard College, passed a national exam to earn EMT and paramedic certifications, attended fire school to learn proper emergency responses, and were taught basics of driving fire apparatus. Once assigned to a fire station, the graduates will receive additional fire training, intensive supervision and valuable experience from their colleagues.
