There is always one who thinks they are above any rules. Hope the police talk with them but you just can't reason with some people!

Thank you for coming out so quickly and working to fix this!

Congratulations to Hockessin Firefighters Jack Bainter and Andrew Overman on graduating from the New Castle County Fire Academy!
This was the 7th Academy class held by Delaware State Fire School; a streamlined program for new firefighters to receive all of their basic firefighting, rescue and CPR/First Aid in the span of 4 months.

Andrew won the top physical fitness award and one of his feats was the most push-ups in a row; 144, the high for any Academy!

Andrew and Jack are both high school seniors and have devoted much time and service to our Company! It takes much time and commitment to complete this Academy, and HFC is very appreciative to have them both as members!
