The following is a press release from South King County Fire Training consortium.

The South King County Fire Training Consortium is proud to announce and invite the public to the graduation of its fifth recruit class.

The 24 recruits have spent 19 weeks learning the trade of being a firefighter. Fire hose handling, conducting search and rescue, and earning their EMT certification are just a few of the skills they have gained. While some have worked in the fire service before, for many, this was a new experience.

The service will be held on June 19 at 6 p.m. at the River of Life Church (10615 SE 216 St. Kent, WA 98031).
