Marines with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265 (Reinforced), 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, operate fire hoses under the direction of firefighting instructors during training with the Mobile Aircraft Firefighting Training Device at the base fire station here, June 14. The Marines who participated in the training did not have firefighting occupations, but due to their work around aircraft, they are required to be first responders in the event an aircraft catches fire. The 31st MEU is the only continuously forward-deployed MEU and is the Marine Corps’ force in readiness in the Asia-Pacific region.
