CSFD Welcomes New Firefighters to the Department
The Colorado Springs Fire Department’s twenty-two new fire trainees have had an amazing start to their careers. The Waldo Canyon Fire began one day after their training academy ended. The new firefighters signed their oaths and were out on the fire line. On June 29, 2012 they were scheduled to have a traditional ceremony where they would be sworn in and friends and families would be on hand to celebrate. Due to fire, the ceremony was postponed and on June 28, 2012 while on the fire line, this new group of firefighters had the honor of meeting President Obama. He congratulated them on completing their training and thanked them for not hesitating to answer the call of duty.
CSFD be holding the graduation ceremony for the Training Academy Class of 2012 on August 21, 2012 at 3:00pm at the Radiant Church, 4020 Maizeland Road, Colorado Springs, CO 80909.
