Fighting Fires: STL Photo of the Week

Posted on September 20, 2019 in Photos

Each year, as required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), St. Louis Airport Rescue Firefighters (ARFF) participate in a training program at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) using a Mobile Aircraft Rescue Trainer. The mobile trainer, provided by the University of Missouri Fire & Rescue Training Institute, is a 50 foot fuselage capable of producing simulated fires, including a fully engulfed aircraft. The training takes place within the secure space of the airfield, away from normal operations. The training program lasts for three days, covers all shifts, and utilizes various scenarios to ensure our ARFF team is prepared and well-trained for any situation.
