Billings Fire Department (BFD) celebrated the graduation of eleven new firefighters from basic training on Tuesday, Nov. 22 at Fire Station No. 1. One Lockwood Fire recruit also joined them.
Now that they’ve completed the 14-week academy training, they will go on to serve Billings as probationary firefighters, according to a post from the City of Billings. They will become “full-fledged firefighters” in three months’ time.
