Prince George, B.C.- it is quite possible you may spot thick black smoke coming from the area of the Prince George Airport this morning, but there is no need for concern.
The Airport is conducting more fire training, as it does every summer.
From 7-9 this morning, a training exercise will be underway at the Airport’s training site. The fire poses no threat to surrounding areas, or to the public.
The training fires take place on a training facility site, are controlled situations and part of ongoing training and certification for the Airport’s Operations Team’s certification.
There will be other similar training exercises at the Airport over the summer, but dates have not yet been set.
That’s just wonderful for the air quality and environment.
But I’ll bet that you would be more than grateful for the training that they do, if the unfortunate were to happen and you or your loved ones happened to be involved in a situation where this training proved to be abundantly beneficial to a positive outcome!
Oh yes , that old argument. Why don’t we set cars on fire every weekend as well, so they can practice for a more realistic scenario? People get shit for burning wood stoves , and having campfires … but let’s ignite a bunch of diesel fuel in the name of safety … right.
Aircraft fires are very likely NOT going to be the same as a car fire!
Most car fires, in all likelihood the vast majority of car fires involve a car, a car that the occupants have managed the vacate!
Compare that to a Westjet or Air Canada flight coming in with a full passenger load, all hoping to get out safely!
Hope you never are in either a burning car or a burning plane Leroyjenkins, but I’d be willing to be money that you would appreciate their training!
