PRESS RELEASE

Graduating with 23 firefighters from across Massachusetts, Firefighter Langer received the Richard N. Bangs Award which is given to the outstanding student of each recruit class. This recognition was based on Firefighter Langer’s exceptional academic average and outstanding skill proficiency.

The recruit curriculum spans nine weeks and is designed to train and evaluate students in the basic skills of the firefighting profession. This program is both physically and academically rigorous. Completing the recruit course in itself is an accomplishment worthy of recognition. Firefighter Langer excelled in the program and based on his performance was nominated by Massachusetts Firefighting Academy Instructors to receive the designation of outstanding Student.

Mayor David Narkewicz congratulated Firefighter Langer and stated “Firefighter Langer should be proud of his accomplishment and the dedication that he brought to this very difficult training program”

Over the past decade several Northampton Firefighters have received this award. Chief Brian Duggan was recognized with this award as he graduated from the Massachusetts Fire Academy thirty years ago. Chief Brian Duggan Said “Firefighter Langer’s exceptional performance stands as a strong tribute to the quality services that the Department brings to the City of Northampton”
