Airport fire brigade

The Engadine Airport has its own aerodrome rescue & fire fighting service that is well-trained and equipped to handle fire control in an aviation setting. It guarantees the fire fighting capacity for ICAO Fire Fighting Categories 1 through 6 on 365 days a year.

The airport's rescue and firefighting personnel receive recurrent instruction in specialised training centres for aerodrome fire brigades and participate in live drills at least six times a year.

The airport's two modern firefighting vehicles carry different firefighting agents and can rapidly reach any point of the airfield.
