Crew members prepare to fight a simulated fire onboard the LCU 2001 "Runnymede." If a fire were to break out, half of the fire team would immediately start spraying down the area of fire while the other half dons fireproof suits. Once half the team is dressed, they switch off positions so they can get dressed while still maintaining constant control of the fire. The crew is expected to take no more than two minutes to be fully dressed in fire protection gear.
