The Nash Community College NC Fire Recruit class of 2011, finished 16 weeks of grueling fire and rescue training ending with a live burn in an acquired structure. With the completion of the academy the recruits will take their place among a proud group of graduates from the Nash Community College (NCC) Recruit Firefighter Academy. Previous graduates of the NCC Recruit Firefighter Academy are currently employed by the City of Rocky Mount NC FD., Greenville Fire and Rescue, Nashville Fire and Rescue and Tarboro FD.

Seventeen students participated in the live burn. Fifteen recruits that did not possess a NC EMT certification will now proceed through another six weeks of EMS training to receive their NC EMT-Basic certification.
