Eight new Santa Monica Fire Department firefighters will graduate this month from the first SMFD fire academy of 2014. A ceremony is scheduled at 8 am next Saturday, May 10.

The new recruit firefighters endured a strenuous 12 week academy where they were taught the basic skills that establish the habits required for a long and safe career with the Santa Monica Fire Department.

Service to the citizens of Santa Monica is the core of the Fire Department’s mission.

The community can be confident that they are receiving eight well trained and enthusiastic firefighters who are committed to serving the public with integrity, passion, and dedication.

The graduation ceremony will be held at the Santa Monica Museum of Flying located at 3100 Airport Avenue in Santa Monica, CA 90405, from 8 am to 11 am. The public is welcome to attend.
