ROYAL AIR FORCE LAKENHEATH, England -- Airman 1st Class Christopher Hatch, 48th Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter, puts on protective equipment during an emergency response and mass casualty exercise, June 8, 2011. Airmen from the 48th Fighter Wing responded to the incident after a simulated fuel line ruptured, spilling more than 15,000 gallons of jet fuel and causing a collision between a bus, a privately owned vehicle and a group of Airmen participating in physical training. The purpose of the exercise was to validate and evaluate multiple procedures when responding to such a scenario. (U.S. Air Force photo /Tech. Sgt. Lee A. Osberry Jr.)
