CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Corpus Christi Fire Department welcomed some new firefighters today.

This was the pinning ceremony for the 41st Fire Academy.

The 25 cadets who were in that academy have more than 1700 hours paramedic training. And more than 700 hours in fire training under their belts.

And, they will provide some much-needed relief for the fire crews. Who've been working very long hours because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
