Recruit Class 8 by Ladder 8

Earlier this year, Madison welcomed thirteen new firefighter/EMTs to your neighborhood fire station. Recruit Class 8 graduated the MFD Fire Academy in January, and some moved on to the MFD EMS Academy to receive their certification and license as Emergency Medical Technicians.

The recruits of Class 8 bring a variety of unique backgrounds to the City of Madison, ranging from military experience to physical therapy, food service, personal fitness training, and much more.

Join us in welcoming Madison’s newest firefighters, listed below, and follow the MFD Blog as we introduce you to Recruit Class 8!
