class 001


Congratulations to the 26 recruits for completing the very first Kentucky Fire Commission’s Recruit Academy! These recruits spent 13 weeks in training and will exit the Academy as fully certified 400-hour firefighters in the state of Kentucky. Kudos to each of them for their hard work and their accomplishments! Dr. Czarapata presented each recruit with their diploma during the graduation ceremony. 

The Fire Commission would like to thank the recruit's departments, recruit's families, Academy staff, Wendell H. Ford Regional Training Center, instructors, graduation speakers, and everyone who has supported and assisted with development and execution of this pilot class. They say it takes a village, and we can fully attest that it does.
