2018 Firefighter I/II Graduates

On Saturday, May 19, 2018, the Barnstable County Fire & Rescue Training Academy held graduation ceremonies at Cape Cod Community College for 34 firefighters sponsored by 7 Cape Cod fire departments.

The Academy’s comprehensive program trains recruits in the areas of basic fire suppression, SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus), search and rescue, vehicle extrication, ladders, and hazardous materials, as well as several other subjects to assist them in their goal of becoming firefighters. Recruits learn all these skills and more from certified fire instructors who are also experienced firefighters.
