Corpus Christi, Texas – Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA) will conduct a dedicated and test run before using the new Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) truck. The new $ 860,000 ARFF truck was funded from a federal grant of $ 692,000, with the remaining $ 168,000 from airport revenues. Trucks can carry 1,500 gallons of water and 500 pounds of dry chemicals to fight fires.
The ceremony also honors Lieutenant Bobby Almager, a public security officer who worked for CCIA for 24 years as a law enforcement officer, firefighter, and paramedic (EMT). Lieutenant Almager died in July 2020 from a complication of COVID-19.
Media members who want to cover their dedication and test runs can park in the Delmar Hangar on Grason Drive. As you head south on International Drive towards the terminal, turn left on Glasson Drive and follow the road to the end. The Delmar Hangar is on the right. The ceremony takes place just outside the hangar.
Plan to arrive by 9:50 am so that airport employees can guide you to outdoor locations.
