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.
