Tonight Thursday 7/12/18, 8 Mohegan Firefighters officially graduated their 2018 NYS Firefighter I curriculum at the Westchester County Fire Training Center in Valhalla. Tonight's ceremony was for volunteer firefighters from throughout the region and included a bagpipe escort by the Westchester County Firefighters Emerald Society.
