LAFD Air Operations, Air Support & Helicopter Maintenance
Van Nuys Airport
We strongly encourage you to view a flyer with important information for this event, and are pleased to provide an interactive map with driving directions to a special parking site for all attendees, from which free shuttle service will be provided.
PLEASE NOTE: Because this is an active airport facility, all attendees will be subject to security screening. Alcohol, glass bottles, coolers, large tote bags, pets, bicycles, skates and skateboards are strictly prohibited.
Following Saturday's dedication ceremony, there will be food and entertainment as well as a chance to tour Southern California's newest municipal facility, which serves the Los Angeles Fire Department and allied agencies.
All members of the community are welcomed to this family-themed public event.
The new LAFD Air Operations and Airport Fire/Rescue facility, also known as Fire Station 114, replaces cramped and inefficient buildings that were used for more than three decades, and deemed deficient in operational and safety issues affecting air operations including; take off and landing clearances, helicopter parking and hanger space, clearance between helicopters, parts storage capabilities, and noise affecting the neighborhood.

The men and women of the LAFD look forward to seeing you and your family on Saturday, May 31, 2008. Don't forget your camera!
