VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Valdosta Fire Department gained four new firefighters that graduated from recruit school. 

Each of the new firefighters participated in a 13-week intensive training. 

There they learned the basics of firefighting, hazmat protocol, and emergency medical response. 

"It feels real good. It's a lot of late nights and studying on the books all day," says Nicholas Bishop about graduating.

The new firefighters will have their first day at work this weekend.
