Nigerian emergency managers visit Grissom, Indy

GRISSOM AIR RESERVE BASE, Ind. -- A group of Nigerian emergency managers visited Grissom recently to gain a better understanding of how the U.S. Air Force responds to emergency situations like aircraft fires and security breaches.

While at Grissom, demonstrations were conducted by both the Grissom Fire Department as well as the 434th Security Forces Squadron.

The group, sponsored by U.S. African Command's 17th Air Force, also spent a few days at the Indianapolis International Airport while in Indiana to witness an emergency exercise held there as well.
