Fire Training

The Connecticut Fire Academy is near the airport.  It has a tower where firefighters learn fire-fighting techniques.

Rather them than me. That's one job I wouldn't even contemplate doing. I'm glad that others are braver than me!

When I lived in Mesa (a few miles to the east) I used to see the fire training facility all of the time. I'm not sure where it is in Phoenix. This tower is much more realistic than the one I used to see in Mesa.

Great shot, causes me to wonder where our firefighters train. May have to go ask a neighbor.

Terrific capture and what heroes they are! Hope you've had a great weekend, Jack!

My daughter's dad was a fire fighter and I used to have to deliberately NOT think about the danger he might be in. Thankfully he survived to retire and go on to more tranquil pursuits.

I love "action" shots. This one is something I haven't seen in awhile. I love it!!

My brother-in-law is a firefighter...have always wondered how they do it! Heights and fire and all...
