Tuesday night at McDuffie County Fire Rescue Service headquarters three young firefighters were welcomed to the department in a graduation ceremony.
Chief Tanner presented a fire helmet and badge to Richard Few, Megan Prescott, and Kyle Dillon at the end of the graduation observance.
The graduation signified that all three met all the national standards for Firefighter I, Firefighter II, Hazardous Materials Awareness, Hazardous Materials Operation, First Responder, Incident Command certifications and training.
“They’ve got a pretty good background and foundation. But with that said, you’re not through learning,” he said.
Few, 19, said he joined the fire service because he likes helping people
“I plan on making a career out of it. Firefighting has been a dream since I was little,” he said.
