The Bourbonnais Fire Protection District would like to congratulate all 7 candidates who graduated this past weekend from the Illinois Fire Service Institute’s “Blended Operations Firefighter” Academy in Streator, IL. The blended BOF program consists of an extensive 18-week course of 240 hours of online learning and practical scenarios. There are not enough words to express how much dedication and commitment these candidates showed to complete this course.
