The exercise had fire fighters training in a multi-story fire training tower a Sioux City airport on a variety of structural fire scenarios.

During the several day training period, fighter fighters used tools to practice roof entry, victim rescues as well as extinguishing fires.

Firefighters also had the opportunity to practice entry into a pair of salvage vehicles that were brought on base for the training exercise.
