20 graduate from Hall County Fire Service training

POSTED: July 6, 2013 12:33 a.m.

Twenty newly graduated fire fighters will begin their duties around Hall County after graduation ceremonies Friday night.

After 16 weeks of school, recruits from Hall County Fire Service recruit class No. 37 were graduated at Chestatee High School theater in front of department brass and enough family and friends to nearly fill the room. Fire Chief David Kimbrell issued the oath of office, handed out diplomas and charged the recruits. Recruit Brooks Sullards read his “reflections” to the class.

Some of the 20 will go directly into service in one of the county’s fire stations while others will go on to emergency medical technician school. One woman, Marlana Crews graduated with the 19 men. Tray Ross, who pulled a blind man from a burning Gainesville house in November 2011 and received a Carnegie Medal for heroism, was among the 20.

Other graduates of the class are Patrick Drew Allingham, Cody William Bowen, Drew William Couch, Marlana Renee Crews, Harold Lavon Fraser, James Brandon Gibson, Alexander John Goebel, Matthew Clinton Harbin, Maverick Pierce House, Justin Howard Jackson, Matthew Cleveland McCall, Zachary James Mills, Austin Jeffrey Morgan, Athen Chase Mullinax, Robert Lynn Patterson Jr., Zachary David Rusch, Brooks Daniel Sullards, Gary Lamar Tiller Jr. and Stockton Aaron Trotman.
