Perched high on the side of the Andrewsburn facility, 316th Civil Engineer Squadron firefighters, Senior Airman Timothy Mulvaney, standing left, works in unison with Senior Airman Justin Minton, right, to secure Airman 1st Class Steve Hjerstedt, a “spinal injury victim” into a Stokes litter basket during high angle rescue training Tuesday. The training, sponsored by Maryland Fire Rescue Institute from the University of Maryland, is just one of the specialized courses to help the Airmen acquire rescue technician certification.
