Fire Training Activity

Print Send Bookmark

The DFW Fire Training Research Center trains fire fighters locally, nationally and internationally in the specialty of airport / aircraft fire fighting. We use many different aircraft-designed mock-ups, and purposely ignite the mock-ups to train these fire fighters. During training periods you will see black smoke as a result of these training fires. The rising smoke that you see quickly dissipates into the atmosphere which is a way to know the smoke you see is from the training fires. The DFW FTRC uses clean burning propane and a liquid fuel called E-III – both are environmentally friendly. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) continually monitors the training fires to ensure state and federal guidelines are followed. To learn more about what they do visit their website here.
