Many families were in attendance as prospective firefighters were issued their training gear. Each recruit was also given a CFD badge by Assistant Chief Jamie Helms which they will have to keep with them and protect through the next 18 weeks.

Classes for the recruits will begin on Monday. Good luck everyone!
