We would like to thank everyone for their cooperation with our efforts to keep the concourse clear! We appreciate all of the positive feedback we have received, as well! We will be continuing our increased presence on the concourse to ensure smooth traffic flow. Remember - the outside 2 lanes are for movement, the inside 2 lanes are for immediate loading and unloading only.

Please join us tomorrow to honor our fallen heroes. 💙

Please remember that at NO time may a vehicle be left unattended on the concourse at the airport terminal. Lanes 1 & 2 are for ACTIVE loading and unloading of passengers only. Lanes 3 & 4 are for driving. At no time shall a vehicle be stopped in those lanes unless yielding to pedestrians. Please remember that you can park for FREE for up to 30 minutes in the parking lots! Vehicles left unattended on the concourse are subject to a $50 citation. Airport Police will be actively enforcing all activity on the concourse.

FAI’s Officer Derek Cottle was honored last Friday at the University Fire Department’s annual awards banquet. Officer Cottle was presented the Public Recognition Award for the life saving measures he took while responding to a victim with a deep penetrating injury to the neck with significant loss of blood. He provided immediate medical aid to stop the loss of blood and provided medical care for the patient that directly contributed to saving the victims life. Officer Cottle is an 8 year member of the Fairbanks International Airport Police & Fire department, an EMT, and member of the AST Special Emergency Reaction team. Way to go!

We would like to give a HUGE shout out to our fabulous field maintenance crew! These guys worked hard all winter long, making sure that the nearly 7 feet of snow accumulation FAI received this winter didn’t stop travelers from escaping to warmer destinations. 😉 Thanks again, guys - we really appreciate all you do!

Our very own Officer Olsen-Saville, who is also a Staff Sergeant in the US Army Reserves, competed last week in the 2018 9th Mission Support Command Best Warrior Competition. This three day event took place in Hawaii and encompassed many aspects of Army Warrior Tasks and tested the knowledge and warrior skills of each competitor. We are beyond excited to report that Officer Olsen-Saville won 6 of the 9 total events and was the ONLY competitor to complete the 12 mile road march in under 3 hours! He had to wear a 40 pound pack and finished in 2 hours, 55 minutes. He was crowned the overall winner and will go forward to compete in the U.S. Army Reserve Best Warrior Competition this June! Congratulations Officer Olsen-Saville! We wish you the best of luck this summer!

It’s that time again - don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour tonight for Daylight Saving Time!

It’s National “Love Your Pet Day!” Even though she’s retired, we still love seeing Daisy! Let’s see pictures of your furry loves! 💙🐶🐱🐾

Traffic Tip Tuesday! The roads are a little more narrow due to the snow we've accumulated so we thought now would be the perfect time for a safety tip. According to Alaska Statute 28.35.185, if a driver of a vehicle approaches an emergency vehicle (police or fire) that is sitting stationary with its emergency lights on, they are required by law to do the following: 1) If there are two or more lanes traveling in the same direction, vacate the lane closest to the emergency vehicle. 2) If they are unable to safely vacate the closest lane, they must slow down to a reasonable and prudent speed given traffic, roadway and weather conditions. This statute also applies if you are approaching a tow truck in the act of picking up a vehicle or an animal control vehicle being used to perform official duties. What does this mean in non-legal mumble jumble? If you are driving and come across a police car, fire truck, ambulance, etc. and our emergency lights are on, you are required to move over if you can safely do so. If you can’t move over due to a safety or traffic reason, please SLOW DOWN! Far too many police officers are injured or killed each year because they are hit by passing motorists. Not doing so will earn you a $150 citation and two points on your license. If you injure someone, it becomes a criminal charge. Please help keep us safe so we can go home to our families at the end of each shift! 💙🚓🚑🚒❤️
