It was a historic day for the Rochester Fire Department. On Friday, the department celebrated the graduation of the 20 recruits who completed their training at the fire academy.
This year’s class is among the most diverse ever. Sixty percent of the graduates are either minorities or women. Some are also the sons and daughters of current or former firefighters.
