Twelve new recruits from Windsor Fire & Rescue Services graduated to firefighters during a ceremony held at the Caboto Club, Thursday evening.

Graduates Corey Donaldson, Aaron Campeau, Steven Weiler, Gideon Hesman, Colin Loebach, Brett Mayville, Patrick Gray, Michael Sooley, Jonathan Lowicki, Stephen Rodger, Andrew Matyjasek, and Mason MacDonald received their badges, epaulettes and pledged to service the citizens of Windsor.

The recruits, who were selected from around one thousand applicants, spent months training in Windsor with Windsor Fire & Rescue Services equipment under the supervision of department training officers Paul Acton, John Smith and Jeff Topliffe.

Fire Chief Bruce Montone congratulated the new firefighters and reminded them of the need to always exceed expectations in their future years of service.

The new graduates were also made aware of which stations they will be working out of.
