Alaska Fire Service Facility Tour

Once again I had a tour opportunity to the Alaska Fire Service Facility (AFS) located at Fort Wainwright, Alaska. The tour was informative, I enjoyed it, and the Manager of Alaska Fire Service (+Kent Slaughter) was super nice. He was the one who gave the tour to the group. The danger of fire is very high right now, due to dry weather throughout the State of Alaska.

Here are few of the pictures I've taken during the tour.




 














Here is a little bit of information I grabbed from Alaska Fire Service web page so I can share them here with you guys of what they do.
