Eighteen new firefighters recently joined the ranks at the MFD and are now serving at a fire station near you!

Class 5 began their recruit academy on October 3, 2016, and graduated on January 13, 2017.

The Fire Academy is a highly-intensive 15-week training period where recruits become firefighter-certified to the highest level in the State of Wisconsin. During their time in the Academy, recruits also participated in EMT training, Hazardous Materials Operations training, rope rescue deployment, vehicle extrication training, elevator entrapment, and prevention training.
