The recruits just after Fight Gone Bad
Rowing for Calories
CrossFit Oakland is proud to be a part this year's Berkeley Fire Department Academy in which eleven recruits have undergone rigorous physical training, comprehensive classroom work, as well as manipulative training with hoses, ladders, water supply, hazardous materials, wildland firefighting, emergency medical services, confined space operations, auto extrication, live fire training, rope rescue and Berkeley geography. The current Academy has trained for 11 weeks, and will graduate mid-December!
The new firefighter-paramedics remain on probation for 24 months before they become permanent employees of the City of Berkeley. During probation, the fire fighters must complete a 6-month, 12-month and 18-month examination.
Congrats to the 2008 BFD Academy to comments.
