Wednesday, June 2nd

Today, all Fire Observers are making a 24 hour tour with their CSFD brothers. Reports came in that they responded to a variety of medical calls, car wrecks, smal fire interventions, fire alarms,...still waiting for the big one.

Yesterday, wednesday, they've had their hands full. The day started at HQ with a "How to fight fires in fast-food restaurants?"-class.

In the morning, they were guests at the Peterson AFB, home to USNORTHCOM, NORAD, Air Force Space Command, Air Force Space Command's 21st W, Army Space Command and the Air Force Reserve Command's 302nd Airlift W.

Our boys were welcomed by the miltary firefighters in a brand new and huge station. There was a moment to shoot pic's since the ARFF-unit prepared several "hot" demo's for them.

After the AFB-visit, the 14 Belgian and Holland firefighters went to the IAFF Fallen Firefighter Memorial to pay their respects for all fallen US firefighters and EMT's.

In the afternoon, a hike thru the Gardens of the Gods was schedulled, where they've met the crew of Engine 5. This unit is specialized in high angle rescue and they discussed procedures with the Fire Observers and showed their equipment.
