The City of Raleigh Fire Department will hold a graduation ceremony for the 41st Fire Academy on Thursday, 18 August 2016 at 7 p.m. at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. The graduates have spent the last 30 weeks attending classes covering topics ranging from fire suppression to emergency medical training. Upon graduation from the academy, the new firefighters will be North Carolina state certified emergency medical technicians and state certified Level II firefighters. “We are very proud of these new firefighters that have endured rigorous training with dedication and perseverance,” Raleigh Fire Chief John McGrath said.

Wake and District has been honored for the past 10 years to play graduations for Raleigh’s bravest.   To the members of RFD41 — would like to extend our congratulations; we wish all the best in the days, weeks, months and years ahead of you.

Remember what brotherhood means — it is a belief  all people should act with warmth and equality toward one another, regardless of differences in race, creed, nationality, etc.  Promise one another you will never knowingly wrong a brother/sister, or see them wronged;  to all of this you pledge your honor to observe and keep as long as life remains.  It’s not our job on the line.  It’s our lives.  And yours.
