Airport fire training to take place Tuesday and Wednesday


If you notice fire or smoke near the South Bend Airport either Tuesday or Wednesday morning, chances are it is not a real emergency.

Crews will be there working on "Live Fire" training exercises. Those exercises will take place in the northwest airfield from around 8:30 to 11:30.

The training sessions allow aircraft rescue firefighters the opportunity to practice their skills fighting large flammable liquid fuel fires. It's also a requirement from the Federal Aviation Administration for airports that want to remain certified.
