Staffordshire Fire and Rescue have welcomed their newest cohort of apprentice operational firefighters with a special ceremony.
The passing out parade marked the end of an intense 15-week training period for the 7 trainees.
The parade was attended by the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire James Leavesley, Staffordshire Chief Fire Officer Rob Barber and Assistant Chief Fire Officer Michelle Hickmott.
They will continue to develop their knowledge, skills and experience while on and off the job.
Well done to the seven new firefighters.
