GRI's Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting Facility

GRAND ISLAND, NE — A newly completed Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) facility is the latest project completed as part of the Central Nebraska Regional Airport’s (GRI) on-going capital improvements. Strategically located within the airport property to provide the best response rates for emergency vehicles, the facility is home to GRI’s brand new Oshkosh Striker 4×4 firetruck and was designed with future expansion in mind.

The $3.1 million ARFF facility was completed on time and within budget, despite unforeseen project site conditions which required change orders at the start of construction.
