Lethbridge Fire Department Adds 14 New Members

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The Lethbridge fire department boosted its ranks Tuesday, as 14 new recruits became firefighter/paramedics with Lethbridge Fire and Emergency Services.

 

It's the largest class of recruits since 1979 and had to be pared down from over 130 applicants.

 

Training Officer Cody Gundlock noted that with that many applicants sending in resumes, some of which came from as far away as Newfoundland, it ensures that our city gets only the best of the best.

 

He explained that Lethbridge is a top destination for a number of people interested in getting into the field because of our integrated system. He noted that you must be a paramedic before becoming a firefighter in Lethbridge.

 

The training involved in getting to this point includes three to five years to become a paramedic, followed by the 10 to 12 week fire training program.
