Firefighters at San Francisco International Airport will reportedly have more training on how to respond to airplane crashes.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports this is in response to the Asiana crash in July, in which a teenage girl died after being hit by two emergency vehicles.

Commanding officers will go through 40 to 80 hours of advanced instruction next year.

According to the Chronicle, commanders in charge of the Asiana incident did not go through disaster training that federal rules require for officers assigned to airports.
