Twenty-four firefighters are joining the Colorado Springs Fire Department on Monday.
Fire Chief Rich Brown said job offers were made three weeks ago and that the new firefighters will start the academy Monday.
Brown said he’s not “growing the organization” but bringing it back to its authorized strength of 413.
“It’s a great day for CSFD, for the city,” Fire Chief Rich Brown said Wednesday during the monthly mayor’s counsel meeting.
“Thanks for the support.”
