Bellingham Airport Conducts Live Fire Aircraft Firefighting Simulation

Bellingham International Airport will be conducting live-fire trainings in support of its Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) operations the week of April 2-6. Bellingham Airport ARFF crews will take part in multiple scenario-based exercises to fulfill annual Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification requirements and improve ARFF education and training, tactics and response.

The drills will be staged on airport property. Members of the public should not be alarmed if they see smoke, firefighting apparatus, and unusual activity in the vicinity. Trainings will take place primarily during daytime hours. Commercial flights will not be affected by the training, and the airport will remain open and fully operational.
