The Fulton County Fire & Rescue Department recently held its Graduation Ceremony for 13 of its' newest members to celebrate their successful completion of fire recruit training and their transition as firefighters to the field.
The most recently hired firefighters will also be recognized. Chief Larry Few dedicated the graduation ceremony to the 19 Arizona firefighters who tragically lost their lives in a wildfire.
"It is in moments like these, as we graduate 13 new Firefighters, that we are reminded that these brave individuals put their lives on the line when they take on this job", Chief Few said. "In our own small way, we wanted to dedicate this graduation in honor of the fallen heroes of the Prescott Fire Department to let them know that we stand with them in their loss, along with the State of Arizona."
The graduation was held at the Fulton County Fire Station 11 located 4760 Fulton Industrial Boulevard, Atlanta, Ga., 30336 on July 12.
