Class 6 graduation pictureSeventeen new firefighter/EMTs recently joined the ranks at the MFD and are now serving at a fire station near you!

The recruits of Class 6 received their badges and were sworn in last December. While some have been serving your neighborhood since around the holidays, others remained in the Academy until late-February to receive their Emergency Medical Technician training and certifications.

The Fire Academy is a highly-intensive training period where recruits become firefighter-certified to the highest level in the State of Wisconsin. During their time in the Academy, recruits also learn about various specialties within the Madison Fire Department, including Hazardous Materials Operations, rope rescue deployment, vehicle extrication, elevator entrapment, fire prevention, fire code enforcement, and fire investigation. Community service, such as school visits, are also an important component of the Academy and is highly encouraged throughout the recruits' careers at MFD.

Get to know Madison’s newest firefighter/EMTs as we introduce a new member each day on the MFD Blog!
