At Stuttgart Airport, the airport fire brigade will in future train with a mobile fire simulation system for their operations on aircraft.
The new facility consists of eight containers, which together form a stylized Airbus A320 or Boeing B737 aircraft. This allows firefighters to learn and practice different scenarios for education and training. The system was developed by FireGo and cost around two million euros. According to a broadcast, Stuttgart Airport will share these costs with Bremen and Hanover Airports.
“Safety is always the top priority in air travel. Therefore, it goes without saying that we invest here in order to offer our plant fire brigade the best possible training. Our firefighters are on duty day and night and ready for action. In order to ensure safety at all times, you also need good equipment," says Walter Schoefer, spokesman for the management of Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH.
