Congratulations

Our new recruits started their careers with the Oak Creek Fire Department this week. With social distancing measures in place between instructors and recruits, this will certainly be a little different training academy than we’ve ever had before. Nonetheless, we are happy to have them on board as a part of our team and wish them success as they begin their journey.

Though we can not work right now, others must. Our awesome staff from @cubanitasoc and @cubanitasmke had the idea to donate what perishable food we had in our coolers to the Oak Creek Fire Department yesterday 🤗❤️
