The Lubbock community will welcome ten new firemen Saturday morning.
The men were honored at a special ceremony on Friday, after they fulfilled all the requirements and made a commitment to serve the community.
Retired Deputy Chief Chris Angerer says the men have been training for the past five weeks to learn how the Lubbock Fire Department operates.
"They've done the physical aspect, where they've been on this seven-story grill tower out here, practicing working together and learning to be a team, and that's the most important thing they could do," Angerer said.
