ARFF Building Addition - Fort Dodge Regional Airport

 

Overlooking the edge of the runway lurks a yellow giant. Giant firetruck. So large, drivers tried their best to fit in the existing garage by folding in the truck’s side mirrors. Not the most practical in an emergency. A new garage bay was added to the north end of the building with a generous 18-foot wide door. Notice the lights mounted to the lower interior sidewalls, these lights are positioned to illuminate the side storage compartments. The compartment hatch doors open with hinges on the top side of the hatch doors.
