14 new firefighters for Danbury head off to training

14 new fire fighters in Danbury have gone through some initial training and orientation this weekend.  They reported Monday to the Connecticut State Fire Academy.  Fire Chief Geoff Herald says they have not been assigned yet.


Herald says this is not an expansion of the Department, the 14 new members will fill in some vacancies created over the years through retirements.  They will be placed in four various platoons.


All of the new fire fighters came on board having a Connecticut or national registration as an EMT or paramedic.  Herald says that's especially important in this community because a lot of the calls the fire department gets need EMT skills.


The new firefighters will be done with training by December.
