The Midfield Fire Station will be equipped with nine response vehicles, and 172 firefighters, all managed by Abu Dhabi Airports’ Emergency Service & Quality Assurance department.


H.E. Ali Majed Al Mansoori, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “The Midfield Fire Station has been designed to ensure the highest level of emergency readiness, in line with optimum safety and security standards, to handle dynamic emergency situations and potential hazards in an airfield environment. Our aim is to be able to respond to fires in less than four minutes and to get to an emergency in any area in which aircraft movements take place, in less than two minutes. This approach demonstrates Abu Dhabi Airports’ commitment to ensuring maximum safety for passengers, employees and service providers.”


This impressive facility has been developed in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Civil Defense and the construction and operational plans for the new fire station are fully compliant with the UAE Civil Defense’s regulations and requirements, and therefore meet the internationally recognized standards for effective emergency management.”


The central location of the fire station, at the heart of Abu Dhabi International Airport, will enable the teams based there to provide coverage to any future terminal developments as the capital’s airport continues to expand.


Currently, Abu Dhabi International Airport operates four fully manned fire stations, 24/7, to respond to any fires or incidents on the runways or at the terminal buildings, in compliance with regulatory guidance from the General Civil Aviation Authority and the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO).
