Project #6075

Replace ARFF Vehicle and Acquire Tools

Durango- La Plata County Airport

Project Information/Description

The Airport maintains two Aircraft Rescue Firefighting (ARFF) vehicles in order to meet the FAA required ARFF Index B. This project will replace the Oshkosh T1 1500 manufactured in 1985, as well as procure appropriate tools and equipment to be used by ARFF personnel. Maintaining an ARFF index B is a FAA requirement and ensures the safety of the travelling public. Without this equipment, the airport would be non-compliant and unable to accept commercial flights.

Project Details

This project is in alignment with the Strategic Plan objective of Ensuring an Effective Infrastructure Network. Specifically, the project addresses the aviation strategy to operate and maintain airport facilities in a safe, efficient and sustainable manner to support all forms of aviation services.
