ARFF Service

On January 1, 2008, Walla Walla County Fire District #4 implemented a new contract with the Port of Walla Walla to provide Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) services for the Walla Walla Regional Airport.  Fire District #4 is responsible for staffing the ARFF truck 15 minutes prior to and 15 minutes after every scheduled commercial flight.  Alaska Airlines operates daily flights to and from Seattle. Initial training for ARFF certification is composed of a 40-hour CFR.139 training course.  Annual continuing education and training are required to maintain certification. The completion of this contract with the Port is an efficient and cost-effective method to provide ARFF services while also enhancing the level of service provided to the citizens of Fire District #4.
