The exercise had fire fighters training in a multi-story fire training tower on a variety of structural fire scenarios at a Sioux City airport.

During the several-day training period, fighter fighters used tools to practice roof entry; victim rescues as well as extinguishing fires.

Firefighters also had the opportunity to practice entry into a pair of salvage vehicles that were brought on base for the training exercise.
