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.
