By Fox 40 News Staff.
Seven of Binghamton's finest firefighter recruits graduated from the fire academy today.
Bagpipes played at an awards ceremony where the recruits were granted badges identifying them as probationary firefighters.
Friends, family and county officials attended the serious yet lighthearted ceremony that included a selection of speeches a presentation of photos and special awards.
This comes after an intense 15 weeks of training.
"It was a long 15 weeks, we learned a lot, we had a good time doing it.
I'm really excited to be done," said new probationary firefighter, Dan Shoemaker.
During the ceremony the new firefighters received assignments of where they would serve as probationary firefighters.
