New Syracuse firefighters sworn in

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - There’s a new group of Syracuse firefighters set to serve the city.

A ceremony was held on Friday for the 28 people graduating from the Public Service Leadership Academy.

Chief Paul Linnertz swore in the new firefighters at Fowler High School.

The class of firefighters will be required to live in the city of Syracuse at least five years under a new provision in the contract between the firefighters’ union and city hall.

“It will mean more employees who are working among the people they are serving and we think that makes a better public servant,” said Mayor Stephanie Miner.

This is the fourth new class of firefighters during the mayor’s eight years in office.
