Madison announced that 15 firefighters graduated from the Recruit Firefighter Training (RFFT) Program at ceremonies today held at the State Office of Fire Prevention and Control’s Academy of Fire Science in Montour Falls. The graduates represent 11 fire departments from across the State and comprise the Academy’s 60th RFFT Class.
