Our airport has received the Airport Safety Enhancement Award from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Airport staff received the award Tuesday at the annual Airports Conference in Kansas City. We earned the award by having a perfect score for three consecutive years during the FAA’s annual safety inspection. During the inspections, the FAA checks the airport’s compliance with federal safety rules. Among other things, it reviews runway pavement condition, airfield marking and lighting, the airport emergency plan, the readiness of the airport fire department, and snow and ice removal procedures. Getting a perfect score on the annual inspection is a huge accomplishment in itself. Getting a perfect score three years in a row is testament to the hard work and dedication of airport staff. They truly make our customers’ safety priority one every day.
