HUBBARD, Ohio --
Twenty Reserve Citizen Airmen from the 910th Operations Group participated in water survival training at the Hubbard Community Pool, September 9, 2018. Every 36 months aircrews are required to receive refresher training so they are able to survive during emergency situations in open water.
Tech Sgt. Zach Angel, a survival, evasion, resistance, and escape specialist from 910th Operations Support Squadron, said that the participants received a refresher on a variety of skills that will aid them in emergency situations while in open water.
The Airmen learned how to escape from a parachute canopy while underwater, release their parachute while being dragged, how to survive in a raft and proper use of survival gear.
