Response time, mmm, well they knew there was going to be an exercise, as for this "exercise, how does it help them to fight an aircraft fire, a very different scenario to a "small" ground fire.

A prepared fun exercise?
Why not a exercise out of the blue at 22:00 hrs, without any warning in advance?  That is what we call a 'emergency-response'.
Now everything arranged for just after a late breakfast? Big joke. Not real.
