Established in 1997, Blue Grass Airport Regional ARFF Training Center is conveniently located in Lexington, Kentucky, providing a safe and cost-efficient way to ensure your department receives quality training. With the needs of the ARFF community in mind, the training center was designed to give a practical approach to learning by offering courses that allow the student the opportunity to benefit from the latest technology, resources and expert instructors with first-hand knowledge in aircraft rescue and firefighting (ARFF).
This $5 million facility consists of a state-of-the-art control building and utilizes two separate aircraft simulations to provide safe, live fire training scenarios for all emergency response professionals. The simulations—Fuel Spill Trainer (FST) and Specialized Aircraft Fire Trainer (SAFT)—are designed and built to replicate Boeing 737s. They are computer-controlled, and propane-fired. They simulate large-scale flammable liquid fires, engine fires, wheel and brake fires and aircraft interior fires with rollover and flashover.
