Twenty Four New Firefighters Set To Graduate Metro Fire Recruit Academy

Citrus Heights, CA – After completion of the rigorous twenty week Metro Fire Recruit Academy (MFRA), the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District is excited to announce the graduation of twenty four Fire Recruits tonight. In a traditional fire service graduation ceremony at the Citrus Heights Community Center the District will swear in our newest personnel as Firefighter/Paramedics after formally presenting them with their badges.

The ceremony will be conducted by Captain and Drill Master Jeremey Dabb with Deputy Chief Gregory Casentini providing a keynote address to those in attendance. The MFRA instructs Fire Recruits in a range of emergency response skills including wildland and structural firefighting and fire behavior, emergency medical response (EMS), technical rescue systems, community relations, and other mandated skills as part of the California State Fire Marshal Accredited Academy.

While we celebrate the accomplishments of our newest Firefighter/Paramedic we also extend our sympathy and support to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection upon their loss of Fire Apparatus Engineer Cory Iverson at the Thomas Fire in Southern California. We grieve with Cal Fire and FAE Iverson’s expectant wife Ashley, his daughter, family and friends.

We invite your attendance to tonight’s event and will have Metro Fire personnel available for audio and visual opportunities. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me at (916) 859-4589.
