Past airport fire training

Emergency workers at Central Wisconsin Airport will practice today for something they hope never happens. 

They’ll be doing ‘live burn’ training exercises at the airport in Mosinee.

Airport rescue personnel and firefighters will practice with live fire using a simulated aircraft fuselage.

The training will be done on the east end of the airport along Highway 153.

There will be noticeable training fires while the exercise is in progress.

Noticeable training fires will primarily be happening between 7:00 am – 9:00 am, and 11:00 am – 3:00 pm.
