Cincinnati firefighters promoted, graduate paramedic training

Friday was a day of celebration for the Cincinnati Fire Department. Twenty-five firefighters graduated from the department's paramedic training.

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Friends, family and city leaders attended the 2013 Promotional Ceremony and Paramedic Graduation at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

In addition, members of CFD promoted in the last ten months were officially sworn into their new rank.

"Especially want to extend congratulation and thanks to the families of those who are being promoted and the graduating paramedics today because very clearly, you know this probably more so than anybody else -- that none of those who are being promoted or graduating today would be able to do it if were not for your love, your support, your encouragement," said Cincinnati Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls.
