Airport Authority

The Public Safety Department at FWACAA is unique in Indiana. This department is cross-trained with a staff of Police/Firefighters. These officers rotate duties from Fire Suppression at the station below to security, EMS and safety at the main terminal. An EMS/Quick-response vehicle is parked at the main terminal while the Crash Rigs respond from their station off the runways. During all aircraft incidents, the department is assisted by the Indiana National Guard's Fire Suppression ARFF apparatus as well.

Crash Fire Rescue

The 122nd Fighter Wing is located at the Fort Wayne/Allen County International Airport. This active guard division recently spent time in Iraq protecting our troops with their F-16 squadron. Their home airfield is protected by it's own Fire Department. Full-time Guard members specially trained in fire suppression help supplement their personnel. In addition, the ARFF co-responds with the Airport Fire Department for aircraft-related incidents.
