- Airman Craig is a Firefighter and recently responded to two wildland fires threatening a 400-acre Army range and more than 5,000 nearby residents. As a hand lineman, he averted catastrophe by demonstrating a rapid offensive fire attack pinching the flanks and stopped the fire from advancing into the tree line. Additionally, Airman Craig successfully contained a kitchen fire threatening a $500K home. His actions eliminated potential property damage and allowed the family to return home the same day. Lastly, Airman Craig assisted in developing a “field day” demonstration for 150 ROTC cadets. He constructed a 7-station confidence course allowing the cadets to perform firefighter core competencies to aide in the development of future AF leaders.
