Recruit Class 141

As family, friends and firefighters looked on, 46 members of Recruit Class 141 received their badges and marked the end of 17 weeks of intensive physical and mental training.

The graduation ceremony took place at the Cecil R. Gehr Combat Training Center on Friday, Feb. 5.

Speakers included Fire Chief Daryl Osby, Battalion Chief Patrick Errett and class valedictorian Aaron Katon.

“This isn’t the end; this is the beginning,” Erret said. “I look at you guys and gal and see the future of my fire department.”

During his speech, Katon praised the training staff and his fellow recruits: “(Recruit Class) 141 is people who care, working hard to support others,” he said.

The graduates began their new assignments Saturday, Feb. 6.
