Lexington County Fire Service Recruit Class 17-01 to Graduate Friday

Lexington, SC - The Lexington County Fire Service will welcome 12 new firefighters into its ranks this Friday, as LCFS Recruit Class 17-01 graduates.

At the beginning of the year, the recruits learned how to properly throw ladders, tag hydrants, advance hose line, and properly don their personal protective equipment throughout the Firefighter 1 course.

After they had attained Firefighter 1 status, the recruits continued through a rigorous training regimen. The recruits learned about Hazmat Awareness and Hazmat Operation. They then underwent training in Basic Auto Extrication, National Incident Management, Emergency Vehicle Driving Training, Rescue the Rescuer, and Rapid Intervention Team.

Along with the mental challenge of the fire courses, the recruits participated in a daily physical training and were tasked with keeping the training facilities clean and in proper working order. As the recruit program was coming to an end the recruits finished Firefighter 2 along with Technical Rescue, and Wildland for Structural Firefighter courses.

The County is very proud of and excited to welcome our new firefighters into the family and wish them the best of luck and safety throughout their careers!
