I was invited to come shoot some photos and videos of a live-fire training exercise at Powhatan Volunteer Fire Department. I met a lot of really cool people and it really brought me back to my Civil Air Patrol days. The Fire Dept has been training interested High Schoolers On how to fight fires and operate the equipment.

In this training exercise, there were two live fires and one building fire simulation. It may seem simple however it is important to train around a live fire and smoke to make the situation seem as real as possible while under control at the same time. All in all, it was a pretty cool experience for myself as well as supplying Powhatans FD with some awesome shots.
