Vincent Goo, introduced by the Natick Fire Department as a firefighter/EMT in October, graduated from the 50-day Career Recruit Firefighting Training Program in Stow.
Graduating firefighters of Class #307 will represent the departments of Boxborough, Chelsea, Douglas, Eastham, Hingham, Lawrence, Lowell, Lynnfield, Medford, Nantucket, Natick, North Attleboro, Northborough, Reading, Walpole, Watertown, and Winthrop, according to the state’s Department of Fire Services.
The Department of Fire Services states: “Students receive classroom training in all basic firefighter skills. They practice first under non-fire conditions and then during controlled fire conditions. To graduate, students must demonstrate proficiency in life safety, search and rescue, ladder operations, water supply, pump operation, and fire attack. Fire attack operations range from mailbox fires to multiple-floor or multiple-room structural fires.”
