Celebrating graduation at ETCEvery firefighter platoon and EST class has a special ceremony.
Like all grad ceremonies there are traditions. For example, each firefighter rings a bell and declares themselves ready for service. Each platoon also decorates a helmet and hangs that along with a class photo in the main ETC hallway.
Take a look at photos from ceremonies starting with P2 in 2014. All are available on flickr and can be downloaded.
We've also added live streaming in late 2014, and you if missed a live ceremony, there are archived videos starting with the last P4 class of 2014. Missing are the P3 & P4 2016 as there were major technical difficulties.
