Airman 1st Class Nicolas Rose, a 2nd Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter, looks for access points during an accident victim extraction exercise at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., July 7, 2016. Access points were identified to remove the rear hatch allowing access to victims in the back of the vehicle.
