It’s Fire Inspection Time Again!

Fire inspections can be scheduled immediately.  We want to make sure that we get these done in a timely manner and have all hangars inspected by the end of July.  They begin on Wednesday June 4, 2014 and go through July 31, 2014.  Please contact Patti at 775/328-6570, to schedule your inspection(s).  A schedule of available dates for inspections is at the bottom of this page.

ABC Fire is scheduled to come out one day only – as an opportunity for you to get your fire extinguishers serviced on Wednesday, May 28th.  ABC Fire will be parked air side of the Terminal Building and you may drop off your extinguisher(s) and $11 fee per extinguisher, prior to Thursday, May28th.  Please put your fire extinguishers in the “leasable space” down stairs and take your $11 per extinguisher upstairs to Patti so she can keep that log and the money in the office. Thank you for your cooperation.
