Fifteen Firefighter Cadets graduated from Chester County’s Department of Emergency Services Firefighter I Training Program on Wednesday, May 17.

Bill Messerschmidt, Director of the Chester County Department of Emergency Services said, “These Cadets put in the hours and work to learn how to operate safely and effectively at the scene of an emergency and, in the process, developed a sense of teamwork, self-discipline, respect, and duty. 

“Having 15 additional firefighters serving Chester County, Montgomery County, and the region at a time when staffing, recruitment, and retention are so challenging is something that our department, their families, and the community are proud of. Congratulations to them all.”

The 188-hour Firefighter I Training Program started in February and included classroom hours and hands-on practical training taken over 19 weeknights and ten weekends.
