N.C. Army & Air National Guard Firefighters - Maintain Mission Readiness Despite Government Shutdown

U.S. Air Force members from the 145th Civil Engineer Squadron, North Carolina Air National Guard provide training for other civilian firefighters and North Carolina National Guard Civil Engineer Fire Departments. The training, which took place July 17, 2013, is designed to prepare firefighters for a scenario in which a plane catches fire on the runway. Training consists of about 50 burns on a specially designed mock aircraft called the Mobile Aircraft Firefighting Trainer. At the Charlotte-Douglas Intl. Airport both military and civilian firefighters are assigned to these fire stations. (Air National Guard photo by Staff Sgt. Pamela Robbins/ Released)
