On Tuesday afternoon, the Billings Fire Department held a graduation ceremony for its 11 newest firefighters, and one new Lockwood Firefighter.
Over the past 14 weeks, the recruits went through various lessons and scenarios like live fire training to get ready to serve the community.
These graduates are now probationary firefighters for the Billings Fire Department. In February, they will become firefighters.
Below are photos from the graduation ceremony, including the pinning ceremony, where a family member of each firefighter was the first to pin their badge onto their uniform.
