Last week we started our new Firefighter Recruit Academy. We are very excited to have eight Firefighter Recruits for Vashon and three for South Kitsap. The Recruits will be training to complete a 280 hour course to earn their IFSAC Firefighter I and Hazardous Materials Operations certifications. Training is two nights a week and all day Saturday. Those with an EMT certification also continue to serve the community of Vashon by volunteering for two 12-hour shifts a month and completing monthly EMT training. Once completed and certified by the state they will then be a probationary firefighter for one year. Vashon Island Fire and Rescue wishes them the best as they begin this exciting and challenging process
