Mayor Angel Taveras joined the Providence Fire Department and Providence city officials Monday at the 49th Providence Fire Department Training Academy graduation ceremony.

Fifty-two graduates were sworn into the Providence Fire Department, including four women, six military members, and forty-two Providence residents.

The graduation follows a grueling twenty-two week training period at the academy with Director of Training, Captain Scott G. Mello.
