Abu Dhabi Airports unveiled its new Midfield Terminal Fire Station on 11 December.

The opening ceremony was attended by acting chief executive officer Abdul Majeed Al Khoori, the acting chief program officer Sulaiman Al Siksek.

Al Khoori said: “The Midfield Terminal Fire Station is efficiently designed with the most advanced and innovative capabilities that will help us meet our goal for response time, and ensure the delivery of adequate safety measures to the new gateway.”

The 4,100m2, state-of-the-art building has eight response vehicles and facilitates 172 to 200 firefighters who will be the first responders for aircraft rescue and firefighting (ARFF) and provide structural fire response to the Midfield terminal and other buildings and structures within the airside. 

He added: “This is the ideal location to have the Midfield Terminal Fire Station. By being right in the centre of the two runways, fire trucks and first responders can get throughout the airport in just a few moments to serve any location in the airport premises, including all terminal buildings, and support the other existing fire stations.”

Currently, Abu Dhabi International Airport includes four fully manned fire stations to respond to any fires or incidents on the runways or at the terminal buildings, in compliance with regulatory guidance from the General Civil Aviation Authority and the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO).
