40 firefighter recruits were honored during their graduation ceremony in Council Chambers on Thursday. Each recruit was pinned to officially mark their completion of the academy.
Class speaker, Brandon Neilson provided a speech for the graduating class known as the 'Boulevard Bandits.'
"This job is a labor of love and you'll get out of it what you put into it," said Neilson.
"There's no one else I rather be doing it with I would call you all my friends but like Dominic Toretto said 'I don't have friends, I got family.'"
The new recruits will get straight to work next week and report to one of the city’s fire stations. Congratulations to all the new first responders.
