Fire training at Manhattan Regional Airport

It may look like the real deal, but Manhattan Firefighters have been conducting annual firefighting certification testing at the Manhattan Regional Airport. The testing was going on Friday. A photo of the training was provided by Airport Director Jesse Romo. Manhattan Deputy Fire Chief Ryan Almes confirmed it was part of an annual exercise. Almes adds the training was for Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting, adding they are required to annually certify firefighters that are responsible for working at or covering the airport per the FAA. The training includes classroom portions in rescue and firefighting of aircraft. There is also a requirement to annually do live fire training with hand lines and ARFF apparatus.
