The recruits will be graduating from the Joint Firefighter Academy tommorrow in the Fargo City Commission Chambers. The ceremony will begin at 2 p.m tomorrow. You can watch the event in person or on the City of Fargo’s FacebookYouTube and Twitter accounts.

“The academy ensures new firefighters in both Fargo and West Fargo are equally equipped with the same knowledge and skills, resulting in mutual aid being more effective during critical metro incidents. This joint academy is a perfect example of what can be accomplished when our communities work together,” said Fargo Fire Chief Steve Dirksen.

“We are proud to be a part of another fire academy with the Fargo Fire Department,” remarked West Fargo Fire Chief Dan Fuller. “Continued collaboration helps both departments work together to best serve our bordering communities of West Fargo and Fargo.”
