Four rookie firefighters passed evaluations last week, so they will become officials members of the Wauwatosa Fire Department come May.
"When our new firefighters get hired, they are placed on probation for one year," Deputy Chief James Case explained. "During this probation year, they are given weekly assignments, which include hands-on training, learning our policies/procedures, and local area familiarization or map training."
They culminated their first year of service with three days of rigorous testing of their life-saving skills, including extricating people from vehicles, using emergency equipment and fighting fires.
The testing concluded Thursday with four recruits - A.J. Brudnicki, Darrell Frady, Ryan Stanwood and Eric Straus - making the grade.
