Staff Sgt. Fred Frizzell, an 823rd Expeditionary RED HORSE Squadron pavements and construction equipment operator, operates a drilling rig at a well site in Brisas del Mar, Honduras, July 30, 2015. Frizzell monitored the drilling rig during the development phase of the well site -- a process that involved blowing high-pressure air through the screens at the bottom of the well, removing any excess sediment buildup around the screens. This is the second well site constructed during humanitarian exercise New Horizons Honduras 2015. (U.S. Air Force photo/Capt. David J. Murphy)

Staff Sgt. Trevor Alexis, a 374th Civil Engineer Squadron fire protection NCO in charge of training, waits to enter a flashover trainer Aug. 4, 2015, at Yokota Air Base, Japan. Flashover, a near-simultaneous ignition of many objects in a confined room, creates a dangerous situation where both heat and smoke continue to increase until combustion. Simulating a flashover fire in a confined room with limited ventilation, enables a trainer to educate and prepare firefighters to recognize and react to a potentially dangerous situation.
