188th Wing’s state firefighting mission ends after 27 years

Maj. Gen. William Wofford, Arkansas National Guard adjutant general, tests out the 188th Fire Emergency Services Flight's crash rescue truck at Ebbing Air National Guard Base, Fort Smith, Ark. Wofford toured the base to gain a better understanding of the effects of the 188th Wing's current mission conversion from A-10s to a remotely piloted aircraft and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission. In addition to the 188th FESF’s primary mission of providing fire protection to military aircraft and installation facilities, it also responded to emergency calls for commercial and civilian aircraft as well as medical emergencies through a joint-use agreement with the Fort Smith Regional Airport for 27 years. That mission ended Sept. 30, 2014. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Senior Airman John Hillier/Released)
