The La Crosse Fire Department is officially welcoming some new members to the department.
Three firefighters were sworn-in Monday at city hall.
They took the La Crosse Firefighters' Oath and got their badges.
The recruits have actually been on the force for about a year, but just completed their one-year probationary period and were promoted to full-time, permanent firefighters.
"This is a great opportunity for the public to get to see who serves them. They're great young men out there and they're truly here for the community. They want to do good. They want to help, that's why they chose a firefighting career," said Div. Chief Todd Adams.
