There are new faces to the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service, after a graduation ceremony was held Thursday night.
After more than 20 weeks of intense training, there are 33 new fire fighters to join Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services.
"I honestly can not even explain it,” said new fire fighter, Antonio Lyles.
From countless hours in the classroom to putting their skills to the test, the moment of graduation seems unthinkable for Recruit Class 43.
“We went through so much for the last six months,” continued Lyles. “It just blows my mind that we are here right now. I am greatly appreciate that I made it."
