An aircraft crashes on takeoff, spilling and igniting fuel. Hundreds of lives are at stake as specially trained fire fighters respond to the emergency. The fire fighters will have just seconds to analyze and attack the spreading flames. They will need training and experience to respond quickly and correctly. A continuing education program at Lake Superior College in Duluth, Minnesota, will help prepare fire fighters from across the nation to handle such emergencies. The Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting Training Program operated by Lake Superior College in Duluth, Minnesota, USA, features one of the world’s most advanced fire training simulators.
