SHERBURNE – The Sherburne Fire Department bolstered its ranks at the end of December with three new additions. After finishing 87 hours of curriculum, Michelle Jenkins, Chad Campbell and Kyle Pierce graduated from a class of around 20, and completed their state-level training to be firefighters. The three graduates have also been cleared to wear breathing apparatuses so they may enter burning buildings.
“We are proud of all of them. We take pride in being very team-based,” said Sherburne Assistant Fire Chief Jansen Casscles.
Growing up in Hubbardsville, Jenkins had always had an interest in becoming a firefighter. Her brother joined the Hubbardsville Fire Department and her husband is also a member of the Sherburne Fire Department. “My husband has served as an inspiration for me,” said Jenkins.
