KCFD 24-1 Recruit Academy Graduating

KERN COUNTY, Calif., On Monday, February 12th, 2024, the Kern County Fire Department began the 24-1 Recruit Academy. During the academy recruits have been instructed by the best in our department. Through long days, cold weather, and now scorching hot weather, they have been trained in all disciplines of a modern “All Risk” fire department.
