Rockford Fire Department news

Excerpts from

The Rockford Fire Department welcomed 17 new recruits at a swearing in ceremony. That number includes two women, which is a 20% increase to the department.

Natalie Adasiewicz and Deserae Jenkins are two of the 17 who join the ranks of the Rockford Fire Department. Right now, Rockford Fire only has 10 women, and the department has made a push to add more numbers to the city. Adasiewicz says she is the fifth generation of firefighters in her family and being able to be an inspiration to other women is only part of her job.

All of the new recruits will now go through 14 weeks of training before they begin to respond to emergencies throughout Rockford.
