Bucks Graduates 56 Local Firefighters, Names 2 Outstanding Students
The Bucks County Public Safety Training Center, run by the college, recognized those who completed national certification training May 14
Bucks County Community College, the third-largest public-safety training provider in the U.S., recently recognized 56 volunteer firefighters that completed national certification training through the college-run Bucks County Public Safety Training Center.
The firefighters were honored at a graduation ceremony May 14 at the college’s Newtown campus.
Bucks instructors led two Firefighter Level One national certification classes this spring, one at the Lower Bucks Public Safety Training Center in Croydon (Battalion 3, pictured below) and the second at the Quakertown Fire Department (Battalion 1, pictured below).
Two firefighters – one from each class – were recognized at the ceremony with an Outstanding Student Award. They are Russell Cross of Perkasie, a member of the Dublin Volunteer Fire Co. (pictured below, with instructor Fred Hashagen), and Alexandra Finfer of Yardley, a member of the Yardley-Makefield Fire Co. Station 0 (pictured below, with instructors Joe Chrobak, Sr., and Tim Chamberlain).
