Roll call, morning ops with Cannon’s “Fire Dawgs”

CANNON AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. -- As members of the United State Air Force, it is understood that Airmen represent their force 24/7. For firefighters with the 27th Special Operations Civil Engineer Squadron, it truly is round-the-clock operations.

Working 24-hour shifts split between two crews, Cannon’s elite “Fire Dawgs” maintain one of Cannon’s few non-stop emergency response capabilities.

Following morning roll calls, crew members disperse to function check all mission-essential equipment and vehicles for operability. This ensures things are in working order and available in the event of real-world emergencies.

Once crews have inspected and tested all necessary items, they are able to start other duties and training for the day.
