04/25/11 102 W, 1 I - + 5 - 2 Falls Fire Department Recruits Graduate

FireNews published a story last week about three volunteer recruits that graduated last month from an in-house firefighter academy at the Falls Fire Department. Their six-month program, similar in course content to a career academy, was conducted by the FFD training division. The recruits received both classroom and practical training to prepare them for responding to emergency incidents. They also must obtain certifications for North Carolina haz-mat operations and NIMS, and complete the Wake County rookie school. Congratulation to Will Corsa, Julio Mercado, and Lewis Lovell. Read the entire story.

Congratulations guys! I know that yall will continue to do great things.

So will these guys automatically become vollies for Wake Forest? Is Wake Forest still going to employ volunteers? If not, are these guys just SOL in a few months?

Rescue Ranger, they are vollies for Falls. And, there is absolutely no reason that they will be SOL in a few months.

I wasn’t trying to offend anyone or start a battle but I am curious as to what will happen to them once Falls closes? Will it just be lost education or will W.F. take them in to add to the department’s knowledge database?

Can someone from Falls provide some more detail on how they did the academy? (i.e. How many days did you hold class, number of hours, cirriculum, etc.) Sounds interesting.
