BSO Fire Rescue Live Fire Aircraft Training

Broward Sheriff's Office Firefighters train in Dallas.

On Wednesday, January 10, 2007 firefighters from the Broward Sheriff's Office Department of Fire Rescue traveled to Dallas to take part in live fire training aboard an aircraft. The drill was staged at DFW Airport, and simulated the conditions and challenges of saving multiple victims trapped inside a burning aircraft. Under Broward County Sheriff Ken Jenne, BSO became the first sheriff's department in the nation to include a full-service Fire Rescue Department. The Dallas Star-Telegram profiled BSO Fire Rescue during the training, and their video can be seen by clicking the link above.
