South Bend welcomes seven new Firefighters to the department


The city of South Bend welcomed seven new Firefighters to the department Wednesday morning.  At the board of public works meeting, the 2013 Fire Academy Recruit class was sworn in.  The recruits completed a twenty-one week training course.

New South Bend Firefighter Andy Pavolka is excited to be done with his training course.  "They told us it was going to be tough coming into it," Pavolka said, "but I wasn't ready for how tough they told us it was going to be.  It was a little bit different, definitely demanding."

There is one more recruit from the 2013 class who will be sworn in at a later date, due to an injury.
