Last Friday, the joint Fargo/West Fargo Fire Academy celebrated the graduation of five new firefighters here in the Commission Chambers – four for Fargo and one for West Fargo. Welcome to Team Fargo…Brendan, Jeremy, Chase and Matt. And congratulations to Arika for joining West Fargo. This joint academy is truly a win-win for both communities as we work together to recruit, educate and retrain the best and brightest. We will now show a short video showing their training process.
