New-era for Shannon Airport Police and Fire Service

Their training programme is intensive and has benefitted hugely from significant investment in the very latest technology and training aids. Over 500 people applied for just ten positions, which is a testament to the calibre of the team we have assembled.“Our recruits come from all walks of life, including a painter, a panel beater, strength and conditioning coach and paramedic. Some of them travel from Galway, Longford, Limerick, and Clare. Through the selection process, they have proved themselves to be capable of working well in challenging environments, and with people who may be in distress.Commenting on the importance of the investment in new equipment Pat O’Brien, said: “It was of paramount importance to the management team at Shannon Airport to ensure the safety of passengers and staff, and the new fire tenders have additional safety benefits for both airport fire service staff and passengers.Pat explained: “Conventional fire tenders require that firefighters be put into the risk area to fight aviation fires. However, the new HRET appliance reduces this requirement as fires can be extinguished remotely by operating the HRET from the vehicle cab, allowing the application of water, foam and dry chemical directly to the seat of the fire.“The new fire tenders use cutting edge technology and will be equipped with a thermal imaging camera mounted on the HRET to allow firefighters identify the hottest part of the aircraft, key vital knowledge that is needed to suppress and extinguish aviation fires as quickly and efficiently as possible.Expanding on the benefits of the equipment, Mr. O’Brien said: “Also for aviation firefighting, at the end of the HRET there is a piercing nozzle. If you have an internal fire in a cargo hold of an aircraft, rather than commit a team into the risk area, with your thermal imaging camera, you can identify where the heat source is, and you can penetrate the part of the hold where the fire is with the piercing tool.“It literally can pierce through the aluminium of the aircraft. Then you can apply water or foam internally on the fire. It acts like a sprinkler, cooling and suppressing fire. Even if you have to commit a crew to the fire following this, you have already reduced the risk to them by cooling the fire.“Our facilities have advanced to such a high degree we now have outside fire crews coming to train in Shannon and we hope this is an area we can expand on in the future.” Advertisement TAGSClareLimerick City and CountyNewsShannonShannon airport WhatsApp Linkedin Twitter Facebook Shannon Airport “has been abandoned” NewsTransportNew-era for Shannon Airport Police and Fire ServiceBy Staff Reporter – July 24, 2019 353 center_img Sad day for Limerick and Mid-West following Aer Lingus announcement – Mayor Michael Collins Email Shannon Group Focused on Recovery and Rebuilding Urgent action needed to ensure Regional Air Connectivity RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR One of the world’s most unusual aircraft arrives at Shannon Airport Aer Lingus needs to clarify Shannon plans – Crowe Printlast_img read more
