New ARFF Equipment at AEX

Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) is a vital component to operating an airport.  At AEX we continue to invest in equipment to create a state of the art department.  Recently delivered was a Oshkosh Striker 3000.  This 3,000 gallon primary response vehicle cost $800,000.  Expected to be delivered within the next 30 days is an Rapid Intervention Vehicle (RIV)/Reserve Class A.  This state of the art rescue and firefighting responder cost $315,000.  Both pieces of equipment join a stable of advanced equipment that ensures AEX can and will respond effectively to any aircraft emergency.  This equipment was made possible by Louisiana’s Aviation Trust fund.
