Security & Safety
Airport Emergency Planning
The Cheyenne Police Department has a sub-station located at the airport and posts an officer in the terminal during most airline operations. In addition to the Cheyenne Police Department the Wyoming Air National Guard’s Security Forces Squadron provides airport security services inside the perimeter fence of the airport. Both entities are responsible for providing first-class law enforcement and security services to our users.
If you need police assistance please call 9-1-1.
The Wyoming Air National Guard has a full-time staffed Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) crew on duty 24-hours a day, 7-days a week to provide fire and medical assistance to the airport’s users. ARFF firefighters are specially trained and equipped to perform fire and rescue operations specific to aircraft incidents and accidents, aircraft fuel spills, and Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) operations. Cheyenne Fire Rescue, Laramie County Fire Districts 1 & 2, and F.E. Warren Fire Rescue provide assistance to ARFF under local mutual aid agency agreements.
For all fire, rescue, and medical emergencies on the airport you can reach the ARFF Station at 772-6338 or 9-1-1.
Running an airport is a 24/7 operation. Cheyenne Regional Airport has six Operations and Facilities personnel whom are responsible for providing the safety of the airport while also performing the maintenance duties needed to keep the airport open and running smoothly. These duties include building and facility maintenance, airfield inspections, runway condition reporting, snow removal operations, airfield escorting (for construction and maintenance on the airfield), and airport equipment maintenance.
If you are at the airport and need immediate assistance with a safety, operational, or maintenance issue, please call our on-duty operations cell at 307-634-7071.
Pursuant to 14 CFR 139.337(e), the Cheyenne Regional Airport developed a Wildlife Hazard Management Plan (WHMP) to mitigate and prevent aircraft damage caused from striking wildlife present in the vicinity of the airport. The WHMP was implemented in conjunction with the Wyoming Air National Guard’s 153rd Airlift Wing’s Bird Aircraft Strike Hazard (BASH) plan.
Local pilots are encouraged to report observing wildlife strikes on the airport or observing wildlife on or in the vicinity of the airport which could present a hazard to aircraft operations to the Airport by calling our 24-hour operations duty phone at 307-638-3872.
Pilots involved in a wildlife strike must report the strike as soon as possible to the airport Wildlife Coordinator in order to identify and collect remains.
