This intensive 10 week fire academy had eight fire fighters, four from Lakewood Fire and four from Graham Fire. This was the night they all work so hard for, graduation and badge pinning. All recruits worked very hard and all scored very high academically with Lakewood Firefighter Chad Myers as valedictorian. This academy will be the core of education that these Fire Fighters will now build on during their entire careers.
