LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Fire Department has made history, in terms of numbers. The department held a pinning ceremony with the largest class of graduating recruits ever.
Twenty-seven recruits have completed the six weeks of initial training, and will report to their assigned stations Saturday for active duty.
Their graduation coincides with the first day of operation for Fire Station No. 17. located near 63rd and Indiana. Lubbock motorists need to be aware of a new traffic light associated with the new station.
The light will flash yellow most of the time, but will turn red when the station responds to an emergency.
