    I'm Corporal Nathan Hall with your Marine Minute.

    Marines with Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting, Headquarters
    Squadron, carry out mobile aircraft fire training exercises on Marine
    Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton, California.

    The MAFT is used to simulate an aircraft in need of rescue. Every
    aircraft fire simulator is as versatile as possible and is designed to
    keep Marines ready to respond at a moment’s notice.

    Sgt. Jacob Davis, A-R-F-F Station Captain, had this to say about
    the training.

    “Doing training like this helps prepare marines for events that
    happen in real time, in real life. The more we're able to do
    training events like this, the movements and techniques become
    muscle memory so that they're able to respond faster. With our
    job, speed is everything. A lot of lives depend on what we do.
    Our lives, and the pilots of those flying the aircraft. It's extremely
    important that we' re always ready and prepared to perform at the
    highest level.”

    That's it for your Marine Minute, for more news around the Corps go to Marines.mil.
