The LAX LAFD Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Facility (ARFF) Fire Station No. 80 replaced the old facility and is an important component of the Crossfield Taxiway Project (CFT). The older station was 40 years old and had limited storage and training areas. The new facility is better suited to accommodate the size, volume and nature of operations at LAX associated with newer generation aircraft. The new ARFF is double in size of the original with approximately 27,500 square feet, including seven bays to house and maintain rescue vehicles and emergency response equipment. Additionally,the facility provides appropriate living, training and administration areas for 14 firefighters assigned to each 24-hour shift.
