Other celebrations included the Bucks County Public Safety Training and Certification Fire Academy Graduation and the Nursing Pinning Ceremony.

The Basic and Advanced Fire Academies’ graduation was held on May 14, at 7 p.m. in the Newtown Campus gymnasium. Firefighter training is integral to the public safety of the region, as the majority of fire departments in Pennsylvania are comprised of volunteers. The training allows the students to gain the knowledge and skills needed to serve in fire departments statewide.
