Fighting fire

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- A fire rages in a mock bedroom at the 21st Civil Engineer Squadron fire department structural training facility. Fire fighters used this training fire to practice different techniques and spray patterns, and are able to see first-hand how it affects a fire. The two-floor facility is also used for training on barbecue and kitchen fires, as well as practicing roof cut-aways and rappelling. (U.S. Air Force photo/Craig Denton)

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Firefighters from the 21st Civil Engineer Squadron fire department prepare to enter a structural training facility. Fire fighters used this training to practice different firefighting techniques and spray patterns, and are able to see first-hand how effective it is on a fire. Firefighters require at least 300 gallons of water per minute from a line when fighting a fire. The silver proximity gear reflects heat and is used primarily for aircraft fires but can be used in other fire situations. The gold suit is used to fight structural fires.
