29 Cadets Graduate from Chief Keith Owens Junior Fire Academy
Notes from Mayor, Barbara Pennell
On July 14, 2023 twenty-nine cadets from throughout Caldwell County graduated from the annual Chief Keith Owens Junior Fire Academy held at the Gamewell Fire Department.
These young men and women displayed excellent skills in demonstrating what they learned in the fields of medical, extrication, ventilation, fire attack (Hose 1-A Side), fire attack (Hose 2-D Side), and forcible entry door.
I and the Town Council would like to congratulate these graduates on a job more than well done! We would also like to express our thanks to all those who played a part in the success of this Academy.
