Clay County Fire Rescue welcomed 11 new firefighters on April 11, 2012, conducting several weeks of training before the trainees were given station assignments to begin their probationary period. The new firefighters spent time training on County policies and procedures, and participated in multiple evolutions and drills to familiarize them with the equipment and apparatus they will be working with.

The firefighters will be responsible for learning to properly use all equipment carried on emergency response vehicles, provide emergency medical care for ill and injured patients, and participate in countless training exercises to ensure their readiness to promote the safety and well being for Clay County citizens.
Additionally, a new Communications Specialist has been hired to work in the Fire Rescue Dispatch center. Lindsey May hails from Atlanta, Georgia, and began her duties and training on May 14.
