West Pierce Fire & Rescue Graduates 18 New Firefighters
On May 18, West Pierce Fire & Rescue (WPFR) celebrated its 18 newest firefighters as they graduated from the Red Knights Recruit Academy. With 21 total students (18 from WPFR and three from South Pierce Fire & Rescue), they now will return to their respective fire departments to serve their communities.
The Red Knights Recruit Academy is a regional academy hosted and instructed by WPFR personnel. This 13-week program includes classroom, hands-on and drill ground training, fully preparing these new recruits for their career ahead. WPFR is not only extremely proud of the work these recruits have put in thus far, but of the instructor cadre as well. The amount of time, energy and dedication put into the academy is extremely noteworthy.
WPFR applauds them for all they have accomplished and hope the community will join in welcoming them to their new career. Congratulations, Red Knights!
