Air Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) Station, Amata Kabua International Airport
The recently completed RMIPA ARFF Station at Amata Kabua International Airport (AKIA) was designed to meet FAA standards to provide air rescue and fire-fighting support for emergency situations. The two-story building located on 2.67 acres of reclaimed land contains five ARFF vehicles (two Oshkosh Striker trucks, one water tanker truck, and two other 1986 P19 crash trucks) operated by 6 trained ARFF personnel during flights. ARFF personnel receive ongoing training and are able to provide emergency support to areas outside of the airport. This ARFF Station was constructed on reclaimed land on the lagoon side of the airport for strategic location and quick access air rescue and fire-fighting support deployment to Amata Kabua International Airport. Amata Kabua Blvd. was re-routed around the lagoon edge of the new RMIPA ARFF Station to improve the safety distance between aircraft and motor vehicles in close proximity to each other.
The new ARFF Station is prepared for any emergency situation, both land and sea, to protect the safety of visitors and residents on Majuro Atoll.
