Valdosta Firefighters Prep for Rescue Missions

By  | 

At Valdosta Regional Airport, 38 Valdosta firefighters are conducting Airport Rescue Firefighting training.

These mock rescue missions help prepare them for any airport-related emergency.

From first aid to accessing a downed aircraft, these men say they're ready to rescue.

"The crash rescue truck would be the first arriving company to get there," said Carl Smith, a training officer, with the Valdosta Fire Department. "And they would assist passengers in exiting the aircraft and making the egress from a downed airplane."

Georgia firefighters are require to complete 240 hours of training every year.
