The week of April 23-29 was a busy time for the members of the Lynchburg Regional Airport ARFF station. The Virginia Department of Fire Programs brought the mobile ARFF simulator for annual live fire training.

Several ARFF firefighters from Summit Aviation located in Middletown, Delaware & Salsbury, Maryland did their 139 truck burns.
