Northwest Fire District training new recruits

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) – The journey to become a firefighter for the Northwest Fire District is underway for a group of recruits.

There are 20 recruits, all men. The academy is 14 weeks long.

They will work 40 hours a week both in the classroom and in the field. There's no doubt there will be a lot of physical training.

If the men are tough enough to make it through the 14 weeks of training and past the final test, they will become firefighters with Northwest fire and put that badge on their left arm.
