Hello everybody. I want to use this discussion to let everyone talk about what airport he is from or whatever he wants to say about his job.

Well, I'll do the start.
I'm a firefighter at Cologne Airport in Germany. It's the 4th biggest passenger airport in Germany and the 2nd biggest cargo airport. UPS has its europe hub there and FedEx is building a new huge hub this time. My fd consists of two firehouses with together 23 fire trucks. 104 firefighters do their job in a two-shift-system. 21 firefighter have to be there each 24 hours.

Greetings all,

 I am an 18 year firefighter here at Sacramento International Airport. We are classified as a "modified" C-index airport. We have three ARFF units as well as an engine and a grass unit. The ARFF consists of a 3000 gallon E-One Titan HPR, a 1500 gallon Rosenbaurer Panther, and a 1500 gallon E-ONE Titan HPR reserve unit. Our staff pales in comparison (28) to your staff Michael! I was stationed in Germany many moons ago, and although I got to visit your beautiful city, I didn't get to see the airport. I wished I had now.
