Building partnerships at CENTAM SMOKE
A firefighter competes in a timed obstacle course, designed to simulate the physical exertion a firefighter would experience in a hour long firefighting operation during a four day Central American Sharing Mutual Operational Knowledge and Experiences exercise, May 6-9. The four-day training exercise CENTAM SMOKE involved firefighters from Guatemala, Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador, allowed the firefighters a chance to train together and help build the partnerships with Joint Task Force-Bravo and the Central American countries.
