Airservices has 17 newly qualified aviation rescue fire fighters following the end of an 11-week training course.

The 17 men and women have graduated from the Airservice Learning Academy course at Melbourne Airport, having undertaken theoretical and practical training that included simulated aircraft and structural fires.

Members of graduating class have been stationed at various airports around Australia, including newly opened fire stations at Gladstone and Newman.

“The fire fighters will join highly trained teams which provide a vital layer of safety for all users of the airport,” Airservices executive general manager for aviation rescue fire fighting Michelle Bennetts said.

“The aviation rescue fire fighting service enhances the airport’s capability to safely service future growth beyond current annual traffic levels.”

Airservices said in a statement on Friday Ballina and Coffs Harbour airports would also get new fire stations in the coming months.
