The 142nd Civil Engineer Squadron’s fire fighters and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technicians recently completed two weeks of annual training at various locations on the island of Oahu, Hawaii this May.
Many of our civil engineers came to the island to build cabins for the Girl Scouts of Hawaii at Camp Paumalu in Hale’iwa as part of an Innovative Readiness Training (IRT) mission. The IRT program enables the military to work with eligible civilian agencies to obtain valuable training and work experience while simultaneously providing a service for a community.
Other civil engineers sought training and collaboration opportunities in various locations throughout the island. At Hickam Air Force Base, power production technicians serviced various pieces of equipment in addition to the duties performed for the IRT.
