Five firefighter recruits graduated from their fire training course Sunday, allowing them to now take part in routine calls with Sooke Fire and Rescue.

The five recruits are qualified on a basic level, but still got a lot more to learn, said Sooke Fire Chief Steven Sorensen.

“They still got a long way to go, but they’ve got their basic skills, so enough to keep them safe,” he said.
