Scottish Fire and Rescue Service

SFRS welcomes 101 new heroes


The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service welcomed 101 new recruits to the frontline at a graduation ceremony to mark the end of a gruelling 14-week training regime.

Pat Watters, SFRS Board Chair, said: “This marks a new horizon for our national fire and rescue service – and for Scotland.
“Every single last one of these 101 recruits have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt their unwavering commitment over these last three months of intensive training. “It fills me with the greatest pride to watch them as they become full-time firefighters and a part of the fire service family.
“I would also like to pay tribute to the dedication and professionalism of their instructors who have moulded our new modern recruits into rescue specialists of the future. “They will now stand on the front line to protect our communities across Scotland.”
