Rockford Scanner™: North Park Fire Protection District hosted a recruit graduation and promotion ceremony


NPFD: Last Thursday, the North Park Fire Protection District hosted a recruit graduation and promotion ceremony to celebrate the successes of many of our personnel. Five recruits from our most recent joint Parks Academy were recognized, three new North Park firefighters received their badges whom were graduates of other Basic Operations Firefighter programs, and new officers were recognized and received their new badges.

Huge congratulations go to Seth Antczak, Theodore Ingrassia, David Rosen, Samantha Stottlemeyer and Devin Welton for successful completion of the Parks Academy.

Congrats as well to Jacob Gomulka, Brandon Lamprich and Emmanuel Malavolti on their completion of their Basic Ops programs as well.

Congratulations also to newly promoted officers who completed written exams, tabletop tactical scenarios graded by outside chief officers and interviewed with North Park command staff.

Recently promoted to Lieutenant: Peter Brackett, Matthew Johnson, Jose Martinez and Kyle Slocum.

Promoted to Captain were Matthew Hehn and Andrew Schultz.

Thanks to all of the family members that came to celebrate the success of your loved ones and pin their badges!
