10/27/11 108 W, 1 I - + 6 - 3 Piedmont Triad International Airport Fire Department


Haven't paid a visit to the Greensboro airport in some time, e.g Piedmont Triad International. Random Google search finds this photo on the airport's web site. Looks like the fire department's had some upgrades in recent years, including a new station (built with stimulus money, announced in 2009) and a new Oshkosh Striker crash truck (also from stimulus). Here's a News 14 story showing the station, which opened in September 2010. Wonder what became of the old building? Recall this blog posting, with a picture of a tractor-drawn foamer from 1971-72. The airport fire station opened in 1965. Click to enlarge:

The old Airport Station is still there and while no longer manned, it is still used by Airport Fire to store reserve airport fire units.
