50 First Responders Graduate Fire and Rescue Training

Congratulations!

The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) is honored to announce the graduation of 50 first responders who successfully completed various levels of fire and rescue training. A graduation ceremony was held on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, and recognized the accomplishments of these men and women who have committed to honorably serve their communities. 

18 students completed the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) course, 6 completed the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) course, and 26 students completed the Firefighter I-II course. In addition to their full-time jobs, schooling, and family obligations, each of these graduates dedicated countless hours over the last six months to their training and have achieved Loudoun County, Commonwealth of Virginia, and National Certifications in their respective program.

Loudoun County Fire and Rescue course instructors each designate one individual from their course as the top student. This student exemplifies leadership, dedication, academic success, punctuality, and their ability to motivate others. The top students recognized include Simon Okoth for Firefighter I-II for Maxwell Bennett, EMT, and Tyler Martin for AEMT. Congratulations to all the graduates on their achievements.
