On Monday, June 6, 2022, the Kern County Fire Department began the 22-3 Recruit Academy. The academy was unique, being the largest group to commence an academy designed to teach all disciplines of a modern “All Risk” fire department. This week all recruits will complete the final testing phase of the academy. All who successfully pass will graduate this Thursday. A “Family Night” will be held this Friday, providing their family members an opportunity to observe the recruits’ last training exercises in the academy.
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 and Badge Pinning ceremony.
