When it comes to aircraft firefighting and rescue operations, the stakes are enormous. That's why it's so vital to provide instructional programs to promote and ensure safety.
One of the most promising and comprehensive training centers in the Midwest – and beyond – is based in the Fox Cities.
The new Fox Valley Technical College Airport Rescue and Firefighting training facility, a partnership with the Appleton International Airport, began booking trainees in June. It is located just north of the FVTC public safety training center.
"It is a big deal," said Abe Weber, director of the Appleton airport. "You can get a plethora of training in one environment to prepare for the worst-case scenario."
