Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF)

The unique needs of the global airport industry require emergency and disaster responders to have specialized training for effective response. For more than 35 years, the Emergency Services Training Institute has been training firefighters in Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting to respond to accidents, disasters, and other emergencies. The ARFF program provides hands-on training at the Brayton Fire Training Field with full-size aircraft models and a 5,000-square-foot spill area.

Using classroom, tabletop scenarios, and tactics and strategy training, ARFF courses are designed for those who provide fire services protection as military and Department of Defense firefighters, municipal firefighters and volunteer firefighters. ARFF classes range from the 40-hour airport firefighter course to mass casualty incident training. Particular training needs can be met through custom designed classes from individual specifications.

Several classes are eligible for Pro Board, TCFP or IFSAC certifications.

All students participating in training at TEEX Brayton Fire Training Field are required to follow all guidelines in the Student Safety Manual for the fire field.
