SOTO CANO AIR BASE, Honduras - Central America firefighters practice skills during exercise CENTAM SMOKE at Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras, Feb. 06, 2020. Though this exercise involves many of the same countries each year, every iteration brings new participants to train on life-saving skills. Classes are taught by members of the Soto Cano Fire Department – part of the 612th Air Base Squadron – to strengthen competencies for each of the participants and to learn from one another different techniques used in each country.
