Building partnerships for training opportunities

Tom Pour, Belleville Fire Department fire chief, speaks with Col. Jonathan Philebaum, commander, 932nd Airlift Wing, and Chief Master Sgt. Shawn Conway, 932nd AW fire chief, at the Belleville Fire Department open house event, April 1, 2017, Belleville, Illinois. A key topic that was discussed was how to partner with the firefighters from the local community and the 932nd to learn best practices and share in training resources. Pour also discussed how residential homes are now looking at sprinkler systems for fire suppression. It would be a huge gain for the 932nd firefighters to work with the Belleville team and build a continuing partnership, said Philebaum. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Christopher Parr)
