11/23/07 83 W, 1 I - + 12 - 13 Fire Academy Photos

For your holiday weekend enjoyment, some 20+ years of Raleigh Fire Academy group photos have been added to the RFD history site. Most were scanned from plaques at the Keeter Training Center, thus the lower image quality. Mail Mike if you have copies of the original images. Ditto if photos exist for the years that are missing photos. Help is also appreciated identifying locations and photographers. And Yours Truly is pictured in Academy #13, fifth from the left in the back row.

Hey Mike… – we were all so much “thinner” then and many had more hair too… I think the guy two spaces in front of you nearly broke the camera that day…

Those pictured academies span 29 years and some 520+ firefighters. Scanning the names, there were quite a few folks named Smith (10), Jones (9), and Johnson (7). The most popular first names were William (19), David (18), and Michael (18). And 44 people whose names include “Junior.”
