Wednesday, December 23, 2020

Our units are just taking up from Republic Airport after assisting Republic Airport Fire Rescue with a plane crash on the runway. Our volunteer firefighters laid down a foam blanket over the leaking jet fuel, while our EMS crews extricated the co-pilot from the aircraft. Both the pilot and co-pilot were taken to local area hospitals for further evaluation. All units were under the command of Chief of Department Duane Welliver.
