GFR to host Recruitment Day

By  | 

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB)-- Gainesville Fire Rescue is recruiting more people to become firefighters.

GFR will host a “Recruitment Day" at their training bureau on 1026 Northeast 14th Street.

The presentation will consist of different programs they offer to the department and will offer ways people can train to be an Emergency Medical Technician as well.

“I don't think there's any better place to help people than going and seeing them in what is potentially their worst day and trying to make that day a little bit better and that's a very fulfilling thing for a firefighter to do every day,” GFR's Training Division District Chief Mike Steele said.

The presentation will start at 6:30 p.m. tonight and will end at 8 p.m.

Certified and non-firefighters are welcome. Contact the Gainesville Fire Rescue Training Bureau at 352-334-5075
