The men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department are proud to welcome Michael Suarkeo and his relatives to our LAFD family.
Michael's family members were kind enough to share images of his recent LAFD Recruit Academy graduation. We think they speak volumes of our Department, it's proud traditions - and our promising future.
We would like to not only congratulate Michael, but also his family, who clearly stood behind him during the challenge of LAFD's 19-week Recruit Training Academy.
As Michael commences the rigors of his 52-week probationary period, we know his success will be measured in many ways, not the least of which are the smiles so clearly evident in the photo above, including those of Fire Chief William Bamattre.
Again Michael, congratulations and best wishes. We're proud to have you aboard.
If you'd like to follow in Michael's footsteps, please call (213) 485-8032 or visit:
