The 92nd Civil Engineer Squadron Fire Department hosted West Plains Recruit Academy for a fire training exercise here, June 12, 2021.
“The purpose of the training is to increase our community partnership,” said Tech Sgt. Alexander Spears, 92nd CES firefighter. “We showed them around base, walked them around our KC-135 Stratotankers, shared our mission set, and put them through training with our firefighters.”
The recruits got a KC-135 familiarization, trained on ladder bail-outs for deteriorating structures, and went through the confined space trainer to practice hauling someone through a small space and out of harm’s way.
