Revelstoke Fire Rescue Services has 13 new firefighters who just completed their Justice Institute of B.C. basic firefighter program.

“Each one of these individuals successfully wrote seven written exams and four practical exams on safety, PPE/SCBA, ropes and knots, ground ladders, ventilation, fire hose and water supplies,” said Fire Chief Rob Girard. “Which took a tremendous amount of time and effort. We are very proud of their accomplishments.”

On Sat., April 13, the new recruits spent the day hooking hydrants, learning about fire hoses, nozzles and appliances and deploying and using fire attack lines.
