DMAC Youth tour Monroe Regional Airport

The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s – Deputies Making a Change (DMAC) Program visited the Monroe Regional Airport. DMAC participants, boys aging 9 – 11 years old, toured the airport and relative facilities. Outreach events, such as group tours, offers an opportunity to share the history of the Monroe Regional Airport and view the site. The young boys were able to see how the airport operates from start to finish. Members of the airlines spoke on the check-in process and members of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) explained and demonstrated security screening processes.

The DMAC participants also had the privilege of visiting the Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) station – a division of the Monroe Fire Department specifically designated to service the Monroe Regional Airport. ARFF is also housed on the airport site. The tour ends with a visit to the top of the Control Tower. The young boys learned how to bring planes in and out of the Monroe Regional Airport.

The biggest highlight of the tour was a tie between the ARFF station and aerial views from the Control Tower. Monroe Regional Airport thanks DMAC for touring our facilities and welcomes all groups to come and visit the airport. Contact our administration office for information regarding airport tours.
