Thruxton Airport Fire & Rescue Service
Has provided a highly trained and operationally ready service at the Airport for 16 years and also in that time has been involved in Film and TV Industry work.
The Airport Fire Service has to meet strict Civil Aviation Authority standards and all Fire fighters have to maintain their professional competence to operate at this busy Aerodrome.
Station Manager Rob Porter is in charge of this operation and assist's in training and the building of 999 South Film,TV and Event support.
Our crews have over 150 years combined Local Authority Fire Service experience and to this day continue to serve their local Brigade as operational Fire fighters attending numerous incidents.
It was decided after long spells of working for other companies in the Film and TV world that Rob would venture out and provide a first class service of their own, they discovered many people hired in for Fire fighting cover on many Film sets and TV locations were not or never have been in the Fire Service and we saw an immediate requirement to provide companies with competent and trained staff to do what is required if required.
The danger of saying you can do something as serious as Fire & Rescue is something Rob know's so well, keeping a level head and making the right decisions matter when incidents occur is crucial, physical fitness and prevention training are important to the role as well.
Rob is a competent Manager and are assessed every two years to remain as competent managers at ICS Level 1 with their Brigades.
We have provided
Fire Appliances and personnel for the BBC, Channel 4, and many more TV and
production companies and our aim is to continue to build this service, we have
