CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB)– Students from all around Western New York usually visit the Buffalo Airport’s Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting facility to see its operations and learn about fire safety.
Because of COVID-19 that’s all changed.
The Buffalo Airport Fire Department tells us because of the pandemic, they put the brakes on in-person ‘open houses’ at their facility.
However, just because you can’t go in-person doesn’t mean you have to miss out. The ARFF created a virtual open house that covers most things you would see if you went in-person.
“We are making the video available for students in an effort to keep fire prevention and safety top of mind.”Kim Minkel, Executive Director, NFTA
Officials say the video gives you a behind the scenes view of the Buffalo Airport firefighters, facilities and provides fire prevention tips.
