ARFF Training Ground: Two salvage aircraft are available for use by your department at Mt. Vernon Outland Airport.
Cessna 402B – Scenario based training such as engine fires, landing gear fires, evacuation, and focused media application can be practiced hands-on with no threats of damage to our twin engine aircraft.
Cessna Citation 550 – Extrication, Extrication, Extrication! This specially modified airframe allows “real-feel” cutting/testing of your department’s extrication equipment. Experience the differences between aluminum alloys, steel, and other materials when practicing cut-in rescue techniques.
