Newly certified La Salle County firefighter Juan Rull is pinned by six-year-old son Samuel in an emotionally charged moment during graduation ceremonies Friday, October 1, when the county’s first class of eight cadets completed their course as firefighters and emergency medical technicians.

Cadets earned salaries during their course and have now been welcomed into the department as fully certified members of the emergency response crew.
