A new Naples Airport fire station replaces a 30-year-old fire station, reports Fox 4 Now.
Officials said that years of planning and cooperation happened between the Naples Airport Authority, City of Naples, and City of Naples Fire-Rescue Department.
The Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting Station, costing about 5.8 million dollars, is closer to the traffic control tower. This fire station is one of three fire stations within the city of Naples.
The Florida Department of Transportation funded about 2.7 million, and the Naples Airport Authority funded the rest.
The new fire station was built to withstand a category five hurricane, making it the strongest building at the whole airport, and will serve as an emergency operation center.
