These firemen are rehearsing for an event they may never face . . . but for which they must be prepared. I watched training sessions at the Northwest Emergency Services Training Center in Helena,Mt. today where fighter from far and near can practice fighting a simulated aircraft fire. We are grateful they are willing to prepare for their role. Real of not the temperatures endured are outrageous.
