Firefighters undergo aircraft rescue training at Danbury airport

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters in Danbury underwent their annual aircraft rescue training program at Danbury Airport today.

Danbury Fire Department's Aircraft Rescue Firefighting team is a special team designated to fire emergencies involving aircraft. 

Although the rain outside changed their plans, the crews still practiced how to safely move airplanes out of a hanger should it go up into flames.

The training is an annual event, officials say.
