High-res training of the 512th Rescue Squadron

James is both a Chiver and a Volunteer Firefighter with the Air Force Reserve's 512th Crash Rescue Flight (officially the 512th Civil Engineer Squadron).
From his e-mail:
"We are the 512th Crash Rescue Flight. Crash Rescue flights are the primary Emergency Services Units for the United States Air Force.  These photos come from a 2009 deployment to FOB Warrior in northern Iraq.  Our primary mission is Aircraft Crash Rescue, however our career encompasses emergency medical services, confined space rescue, vehicle extrication, high angle rescue, urban search and rescue, and firefighting operations."

Before getting to the "fun" of deployment, the 512th had to learn to fight fires along with providing first responder medical treatment.  Let's begin with some awesome photos that James sent of joint training at Dover AFB in Delaware. They trained with the 436th Airlift Wing and other rescue units for aircraft crash scenarios.

Quick medical training break.  Inserting an IV is hard to do in a clam setting but in a crash first responder roll, not all wrecks happen on the runway.
