On Friday, July 22, 2022, the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) held a formal graduation to recognize members of Recruit Class 168 who successfully completed their fire academy.
The ceremony took place at the Cecil R. Gehr Memorial Combat Training Center at Department headquarters.
Family and friends joined the Executive Team as the 37 recruits proudly received their LACoFD firefighter badges and took an oath to serve the residents in Los Angeles County. The new recruits also had a chance to show off their newly acquired firefighting skills.
The following day, the 37 recruits officially began their first assignments as probationary firefighters.
Congratulations and best wishes to the members of Recruit Class 168!
