Rapid City Fire Department welcomes 8 new recruits


The Rapid City Fire Department welcomes eight new recruits at a graduation ceremony Friday.

Seven of the eight new recruits are graduates of Western Dakota Tech's Fire Science program. After seven weeks of training some of the graduates started their first shift Friday immediately following their graduation ceremony at the Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn.

Steven Keller, one of the new recruits says this opportunity fulfills his lifelong dream.

"This is a lot of dreams come true for a lot of us. And we're really excited to keep pursuing this and keep learning more. To be able to become better firemen and hopefully become productive members of the fire department," said Keller.

Keller adds they'll continue on the job training, accompanying other fire fighters on EMT and fire calls.
