Many are relaxing and enjoying their summer, but for a special group of recruits, temperatures are rising as they prepare for graduation. This week marked week five for the recruits participating in the Bridge Program at the Anniston Fire Department training facility. The firefighters in training have spent the last few days experiencing what it’s like to actually be inside of a burning building.
Bridge Program Instructor and Firefighter Zach Gauthier says the students learned how important this experience was. Once this last week is complete, all 19 recruits will be on schedule to graduate this Friday.
