Indianapolis International Airport Fire Department Station 2: Mid-Field/East
This building served as the only station at Indianapolis International until 2008. With the completion of the new terminal, this station became isolated by runways and is now only accessible through a protected access road. Station 2 is home to 3 Crash Rescue apparatus as well as Engine 995, Car 906, Truck 997 and 998 and the Mass Casualty trailer. Each day the crews for the new shift drive out to this remote station with their gear in a van (907) and then the departing crew returns it to Station 1 on their way home.
