CENTAM SMOKE: A partnership in the making

By Staff Sgt. Jessica Condit Joint Task Force-Bravo Public Affairs

Thirty-five firefighters, seven nations, one "smoking" exercise. This is CENTAM SMOKE, a quarterly training exercise hosted by Joint Task Force-Bravo at Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras. The goal: for Central American participants to join hands--together and with their U.S. hosts--to improve each other's abilities to fight fires in new and demanding scenarios. Along the way, they all form lasting partnerships.
