Toledo Fire recruits in the thick of training took to the streets of Toledo, not in their turnout gear, but for a little jog. They started at the 911 communications center on Monroe Street, headed down Jefferson to Huron and to the Firefighters Memorial. “We just like to honor it, honor the firefighters that have fallen before us and just really try and respect that,” said Toledo Fire Class #293 recruit, Justin Swartz. That’s why it’s called the Legacy Run. The 47 recruits in Toledo Fire Class 293 took part in what’s become a tradition in fire training. “We had the community definitely speaking to us, waving to us and it just remind us of what we’re doing it for and who we’re here for,” said recruit Janelle Reed-Lewis. The recruits said the run is also another exercise in working together as a unit.
