New Avenger and Training Facilities for Fire & Rescue Service

New Avenger and Training Facilities for Fire & Rescue Service

As part of its ongoing commitment to be at the forefront of safety, Cork Airport has added a modern, next-generation firefighting vehicle to its fleet. The vehicle, known as an Avenger, will replace an older machine that has served the airport’s Fire & Rescue Service for many years.

The Avenger has upgraded off-road driving ability, high spec firefighting systems, improved scene illumination capability, and enhanced equipment carrying capabilities.

As well as the investment in the new vehicle, Cork Airport is also significantly investing in the development of a new, state-of-the-art aircraft firefighting simulator. The simulator will allow for extremely realistic training scenarios to be applied within the ongoing training programme, ensuring that the crews are fully prepared for any situation that may be encountered at the airport.
