  • Building bonds by putting out fires

    When called to respond to an aircraft mishap, firefighters have to be prepared at a moment’s notice to be able to assist however needed. When fires can rage on at more than 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, the last thing one wants to be is ill-prepared. To ensure firefighters are always ready to serve, members of the 375th Civil Engineer Squadron Fire Department joined with members from St. Louis Downtown Airport, Veterans of Southern Illinois Airport, MidAmerica St. Louis Airport and Barkley Regional Airport fire departments to train on approaches, fire attacks, proper application, turret training and in-truck operations.
