Reno-Tahoe Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF)
The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) is committed to ensuring the safety of the airlines, airport businesses and visitors. The RNO Fire Department manages the Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF), paramedic, structural, training and inspections at RNO.
The RTAA has mutual aid agreements with Reno Fire, Sparks Fire and Truckee Meadows Fire to support each other in emergencies. This means the airport fire department can be requested for assistance in special circumstances. This has occurred in situations like wildfires or where firefighting foam has been required.
