Rescue 4 FDNY Visits JetBlue


Recently, our Hangar 81 at JFK hosted the Rescue 4 FDNY team which “borrowed” our aircraft for familiarization training. The first responders learned all about our aircraft, and our team provided information during a two hour classroom training and hands-on training onboard the aircraft.

One of the drivers of the training session was our own crewmember Michael, manager of our Ground and Technical Operations Safety Program, who is also on the Aircraft Rescue Firefighting Working Group. The group is comprised of agencies and industry professionals dedicated to promoting the science and improving the methods of aviation fire protection and prevention.
