PHOTOS | Joint Base San Antonio fire departments conduct live fire exercise

By Tristin English 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

Members of the Joint Base San Antonio fire departments participated in an aircraft live fire exercise at JBSA-Randolph Air Force Base, Texas, Oct. 25, 2023.

The biannual training’s purpose is to assess the firefighter’s ability to eliminate a fire from an aircraft while maintaining control of an emergency situation by leading a team so they could be prepared when a real-world situation arises.

The training involves tackling the fire from both inside the aircraft and deploying high-pressure water to the exterior using a P-34 Rapid Intervention Vehicle.
