Promotion Ceremony Summer 2019

Years of hard work, thousands of hours of study and serving the community in countless emergencies, are just a few of the sacrifices and experiences behind each rank that an El Paso Firefighter achieves. Last night, the El Paso Fire Department honored over 20 firefighters who have recently been promoted.

During the ceremony, the Firefighters had their new badges pinned by a designated family member or loved one. At the conclusion of the event, the honorees renewed their Firefighter’s Oath.
