“It’s really important to do this because, during the academy, we deal with the cadets on individual skills,” said Tulsa Fire Captain Kofi Wallace.  “It’s really important for us to capture all of those skills and put them together so that they can do them in a seamless transition.”

If the cadets make it through the rest of training, they will graduate on April 11th.
