ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. – More than two dozen firefighters from Macon-Bibb County Fire Department will participate in aircraft fire training with firefighters from Robins on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.
The joint training will consist of a simulated large frame aircraft crash engulfed in fire and will require resources from both departments to mitigate the emergency.
Both departments have a common requirement for training of this type due to the airfield mission each share.
“This training opportunity affords each department the opportunity to continue grooming the professional relationship that has developed over the years and assists with gaining insight and understanding of each other’s resources and capabilities,” said Forest Johnson, Robins Fire Chief.
