On Monday, January 31, 2022, the Kern County Fire Department began the 22-2 Recruit Academy. In the months since then, each recruit has been instructed and trained in every discipline expected of firefighters in today’s modern fire service. As members of this department, an “All Risk” fire department, they will be called upon to help members of our community in the most desperate of situations. We are confident that they will be equal to the task each time the alarm goes off. We are proud of their accomplishments and of the dozens of fire personnel who assisted with their training during the academy.
All media are invited to attend the official graduation ceremony and Badge Pinning.
