USAGO Fire Department conducted live fire training with the local Nirai Community Fire Department on 5 December. The training consisted of classroom instruction and role-playing scenarios, as well as live fire exercises to hone aircraft firefighting skills. This joint training reinforces and continues to improve the integrated response efforts between the military and local responders should an off-base military aircraft mishap occur.

Throughout this rigorous training, teamwork and a bond amongst peers was established. The USAGO Fire Department continues to strengthen host nation relationships. It takes a team!
