Title:  Airport Police & Fire Officer I/II

Job Information: DESCRIPTION:

To Apply Please Go To: LINK

POLICE

Our Airport Police and Fire Department strives to deliver the highest standard of service to Alaskans and visitors from all over the world at one of the busiest cargo airports in North America.  As an employee, you will enjoy the benefits of working for one of the most unique public safety departments anywhere.  

As an Airport Police & Fire Officer, you are responsible for law enforcement, firefighting, and medical first responders at the Anchorage Airport.

As such, once hired on, you will be enrolled at an Alaska Police Standards Council (APSC) recognized training academy, currently with Anchorage Police or Alaska Law Enforcement Training (ALET-Sitka). You will also need to achieve certification through the Alaska Police Standards Council (APSC) as well as fire certifications through the Alaska Fire Standards Council (AFSC) by successfully passing the Fire Fighter I and II programs. Fire Academies are held at the Anchorage Airport Fire Station. In addition to these, we will provide you with specialized training only offered by the State as an Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF). All of these trainings are not only paid for by the Department, but you will also draw in a salary while in training.

While the State will provide much of the needed training for the position, it will be up to you to attain your state Emergency Trauma Tech (ETT) certification as well as CPR and automated external defibrillation certifications to become medical first responder. 

Once you have obtained all of your certifications, you will begin in-the-field training with a senior officer. This typically takes about 12-14 months.

Finally, once all certifications and training are complete, you will join our well-oiled team, working in shifts, to keep your fellow Alaskans safe on their travels. The opportunity and challenge of tackling three diverse jobs – encompassing law enforcement, firefighting and emergency medical services – is equally met with great rewards.

Airport Police and Fire officers are certified law enforcement officers in the State of Alaska. They face a wide variety of law enforcement responsibilities and tasks — from assisting the traveling public to enforcing municipal & state laws to networking/assisting a myriad of diverse agencies.  Special emphasis is placed on supporting the regulations and policies of the Transportation Security Administration.  Providing a “customer-oriented service” is valued and emphasized. Officers are the primary law enforcement response for the terminals, airport roadways, Lake Hood Seaplane Base & Airport jurisdiction.

FIRE

One of the primary responsibilities of being an Airport Police and Fire officer is providing firefighting and rescue services in the event of an aircraft (large or small) incident or accident at the airport. Officers are required to operate large and complex firefighting vehicles.  They must possess proficiency with various firefighting and rescue tools. Officers are trained to work as part of a team and must be able to function in “highly-charged” situations when they arise.  Additionally, officers may be required to respond to a wide variety ofother firefighting emergencies such as structure fires and water rescue incidents.

First Responder

The Airport Police and Fire Department provides basic emergency medical services to the public. Officers must be prepared to handle a wide range of medical emergencies in an often-challenging diverse climate and environment.  Officers are certified as an Emergency Trauma Technician (ETT) and certified in basic life support (CPR) and automated external defibrillation (AED).  Other training includes triage for any mass-casualty incident that may occur.

SPECIAL TEAMS

As an employee of Airport Police and Fire, you may have the opportunity to participate in a variety of specialized teams based on your merit and availability.  In addition to the challenges already presented, these positions require additional training and duties.

Teams

  • Explosives Ordinance Disposal
  • Drug Interdiction Team
