Description:They risk their lives to keep us safe, but even firefighters have to learn what it takes to walk into a burning building, and make it out alive.
One of Metro Fire’s largest recruit classes in years, a group of 36 people, are in week eight of a nine week training program at the Cal Fire Academy in Ione.
The recruits will be tested June 28 and if they pass, some of them will start the very next day.
FOX40 was invited to tag along with the recruits Thursday as they entered mock situations.(1:57)
