For the past 10 Tuesdays these two young men have been traveling after school to the Frank Hotchkins Memorial Training Center in downtown LA, where they have received training from the Los Angeles Fire Department to become official LAFD Cadets. Aside from being a member of our Engineering and Design program (Bautista) and a catcher for our Viking Baseball team (Hernandez) they've worked hard, studied, practiced, and trained both at School and with the LAFD.
Now they are assigned to Station 87, near Balboa and Devonshire, to work hand in hand with all the Firefighters there. If an emergency call comes in they can ride on the Engine/Ambulance/Ladder truck to assist. They will also be training young students from the community.
Congratulations to these two young men. They are proof that dedication and commitment can take you a long way!
