Airport Fire Fighting | Cody, Wyoming
The Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting Station which includes the airport maintenance facility is located adjacent to the runways at the Yellowstone Regional Airport in Cody, Wyoming. Although situated quite a distance from the terminal building, this facility was designed to match the terminal, using similar roofing, siding and color scheme. The structural system is a rigid frame selected to accommodate the 14 foot high doors placed on 20 foot centers.
The building houses four fire trucks, one maintenance/plow truck and a number of smaller vehicles. The mezzanine is equipped with a rolling electric hoist for transferring stored materials. Other rooms include bathroom/shower; office; operations; and an electrical service vault room for all the runway light transformers. The project was designed under the supervision of the Denver office of the Federal Aviation Administration.
