Hazleton Fire Department swears in new firefighters

Five new firefighters are now on the force in Hazleton.

They tell us it's the largest staff for the department in 30 years.

The hires were made possible thanks to the SAFER grant that awards funds to local emergency services.

With these new members, the department will be able to have all positions manned at all hours.

The last time the Hazleton Fire Department had this mamy members was back in 1988.
