Periodic tests and assessments are done to ensure AES is always ready. For example, during the ‘Reaction test’, AES firefighters have 15 seconds, from the time the siren is activated, to reach the fire vehicles regardless of where they are in the station. These tests are constantly conducted to ensure a high standard of operational readiness at all times.
“The training for ARFF is specialized, with robust training facilities and experienced instructors. Our firefighters are proficient and equipped with knowledge and skills to keep our aerodrome safe,” said Fairul Affandy Bin Hussain, Senior Airport Emergency Officer and Duty Officer of AES Changi Fire Station.
With the intensive and specialised training that the AES firefighters go through daily, they are well-trained and equipped to handle any emergency to keep the millions of passengers flying through Changi every year safe.
