PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- For the first time, firefighters from Southern Maine were able to train for a plane fire at the Portland Jetport.

The FAA requires yearly certification training for firefighters who may have to work at airports. Typically, Maine firefighters have done their training in New Hampshire or in Boston.

They say doing the training here saves money in travel, cutting the cost of travel in half, and allows them to work on their own equipment, creating a more realistic scenario.
