New fire recruits welcomed

Five new firefighters have been welcomed to the ranks of the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service.

Mahkye Steede, Jordan Govia, Amani Wears, Christopher Clarke and Matthew Mills “passed out” after a 25-week training course conducted locally and in the United States.

According to a press release, National Security Minister Wayne Caines said that the men had distinguished themselves by making the choice to serve, committing to completing the course of study and by looking out for each other.

He said: “A career in the BFRS is a sound choice and it was inspiring to witness the fulfilment of the goals of these Bermudian men.

“The team were recognised as more than equals on the international training stage and this speaks volumes about their abilities and the diligence of the training team in instructing them. This was a proud day for Bermuda.”
