The 612th Air Base Squadron provides air base support to Joint Task Force-Bravo and 12th Air Force including air traffic control, logistics, base civil engineering, fire department, airfield operations and personnel functions.
The 612th Air Base Squadron Fire Emergency Services conducts the Central America Sharing Mutual Operational Knowledge and Experiences exercise; a four day exercise that happens twice a year at Soto Cano Air Base, hosted by JTF-Bravo, where firefighters from across Central America receive training in firefighting techniques, with the objective of strengthening the professional and cooperative relationship among firefighting personnel between partner nations, by sharing and improving information and procedures.
The 612th also supports partnership and humanitarian assistance opportunities by receiving donations, which are destined for the host nation through the U.S. Agency for International Development's Denton Program at Soto Cano Air Base.
