|From Global Aviation presentation|
Hillsboro Fire and Rescue said “Thanks for your help!” today to a senior executive at Global Aviation. Brian Lockhart, Global’’s Vice President of Maintenance has personally and graciously conducted numerous educational tours for firefighters from Hillsboro Fire Department and the Port of Portland Fire Department over the last several years. Mr. Lockhart allowed our firefighters to look throughout their aircraft to learn more about them. The tours focused on rescue access and structural features of their various aircraft models as well as hazard areas such as battery and oxygen tank locations.
Fire Chief Gary Seidel said, “I certainly hope our firefighters will never need to draw upon the lessons they have learned from these training sessions. However, I know if an emergency arises, they have learned from the best in the business.”
Chief Seidel presented a plaque of appreciation to Brian during a Global Aviation executive staff meeting on Tuesday, July 27, 2010. We appreciate great community partners like Global Aviation and Brian Lockhart.
