After Three Month Delay, West EMT Students Graduate

Posted:
WEST -

After a three month delay from the West Fertilizer Co. explosion, West EMT's who were in a training class that tragic night finally graduated.

The graduates walked across the stage on Friday night, remembering their four classmates who were called into action and died in the blast. In a 30 minute ceremony at the Knights of Columbus Hall, the new EMT's were happy to finally receive their certifications and move forward.

During their training, the class lost four of their comrades when they left to assist firefighters at the West Fertilizer Co.. However Perry Calvin, Jerry Chapman, Kevin Sanders and Cyrus Reed were remembered, and each still received their certifications.

The 25 new graduates are looking forward to working at West EMS and doing what they love. The instructors couldn't be happier for all of them. The next step for these graduates is to take their National Registry Exam. Then they'll be fully certified to work as EMT's.

The four who died won't be forgotten. The West EMS Board of Directors announced they will be putting up a memorial wall with their pictures because that's where they wanted to be and work.
