GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — It’s sure to be a busy week for the Grand Junction Fire Department. Friday thirteen recruits graduated the fire academy and were welcomed into the department with a ceremony. This comes after recruits outlasted a 13-week fire academy and a three-week EMS orientation academy. Grand Junction’s newest firefighters get to work next week, and that work might be in Grand Junction’s newest station. Fire Station 8 is opening its doors for the first time on Monday.
