Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting – you should know about these first responders

Firefighters’ stellar performance shows value of preparation, comforts all of us

I am so very fortunate to be involved with this group.  I am working on two academic papers with colleagues about ARFF and have written various articles for the ARFFWG News.  More to come on this fantastic organization…………
