Making Our Mark at Sarasota Manatee Airport Authority

LEMA Construction is excited to be renovating the Airport  Rescue & Fire Fighting (ARFF) at Sarasota Manatee Airport Authority located at 815 Tower Road, Sarasota, FL 34243.

This project consists of hardening the structure of the building, replacing the current roof, replacing all the existing windows, replacing the HVAC, enclosing existing bunk rooms, an addition for a new fitness room and updating interior finishes.

The ARFF Department provides daily aircraft fire protection and airport medical services, 24 hours per day. The ARFF Department employs Florida State Certified Firefighters/Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s) who are ready to assist the traveling public, airport tenants and employees when any emergency or medical need may arise. The ARFF Department responds to all aircraft emergencies and have undergone extensive training to comply with Federal Aviation Administration regulations for Airport Certification.

The Department is equipped with four state-of-the-art ARFF vehicles together with supporting vehicles and equipment to respond to any aircraft emergency on the airport.  The Airport has earned the highest rating given by the FAA for its ARFF services which is to insure safety for the traveler. In addition, the ARFF Department is also linked to all surrounding emergency agencies which operate under a mutual aid condition should additional services be required on or off the airport.

Below are some current images before renovation and a line drawing of changes being made, look for this project to be completed in June of 2020.
