It is possible that members of the public in the vicinity of the northwest end of the airfield could see smoke and/or flames coming from the controlled training exercise between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. during training. 

The MSP Airport Fire Department utilizes a mobile aircraft fire trainer with a propane gas system to simulate conditions responders may face during an emergency. This annual training is required by federal regulations.
