Twenty-five cadets graduated from Allan Hancock College’s Fire Academy in a ceremony at the college’s Public Safety Training Complex in Lompoc on Friday.

The cadets completed more than 620 hours of classroom and field instruction.

Before the ceremony, they showed off their new skills to family and friends with live demonstrations at the complex’s six-story burn tower on running fire hoses, dousing cars and apartment fires, extrication, climbing ladders to gain roof access, and more.
