It’s the time of year for firefighting training at the Prince George Airport (YXS).
These fires may produce dark smoke in and around the airport area which sometimes causes concern from local residents, resulting in increased calls to newsrooms. Locals are reminded these fires pose no threat to the public or surrounding areas.
The fires are held in self-contained training facilities under controlled conditions, and are part of ongoing fire training and certification for Prince George Airport staff.
Training is scheduled to take place on September 26 from 1-3 p.m.
