McGhee Tyson Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting Facility
We Are Building
McGhee Tyson Airport had fire and rescue facilities that had gone without updates in more than 30 years. To keep pace with increasingly stringent security mandates, the airport needed to upgrade these buildings.
A two-level facility including emergency equipment garages; living quarters equipped with sleeping, bathroom and dining accommodations; and space for the airport’s emergency operations center.
Rescue teams sharing the new facility allows for shortened emergency response times.
