Atlanta Fire Rescue Department To Graduate 29 Firefighters



Chief Kelvin Cochran and the city of Atlanta Fire Rescue Department will graduate 29 firefighters tonight at the Atlanta History Center. The recruits have completed the most comprehensive firefighter training program in the state, with 11 months of studying and hands-on work in firefighter competencies, advanced emergency medical and hazardous materials training. 

“We are proud of these 29 men and women. Atlanta Fire Rescue's training process is rigorous, but they have committed themselves to this day,” said Section Chief Greg Shinkle, who directs the City’s Fire Academy. “We look forward to seeing them join the ranks of the fine men and women of the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department.”
