Aircraft Rescue Firefighting

Aircraft Rescue

One of the Modesto Fire Department's responsibilities is providing protection to the City's airport. Station 8 is the home of our Aircraft Rescue unit. The crews assigned to this station must be certified by the FAA in airport fire fighting operations.

The Training Division has the responsibility of ensuring that all the members of these crews receive the training required. This is accomplished by arranging for live fire training annually at the Live Fire Training School in Utah. In order to meet the FAA guidelines, the Training Division provides in-service training for those at the station and for the other companies that respond to the airport in emergencies.
