The Memphis International Airport (KMEM) is located in the Southeastern area of the city.
The airport is a large multi-purpose airport with civilian airline traffic, the Tennessee
Air National Guard Base, and Memphis is the "Super Hub" for world-wide operations
of FED-EX which makes it the busiest cargo airport in the western hemisphere.

The airport is protected by a variety of ARFF services.
Memphis Fire Department ARFF Station #9 is located on the East side about mid airfield.
Memphis Fire Department Station #33 is located closest to the Airport Tower central airfield.
The Memphis Fire Department Fire Station #40 is not on airport property, but is on the Southwest corner.
The Tennessee Air National Guard has an ARFF Station on the Southeast corner of the airfield.
And, FED-EX, which occupies much of the property on the Northern area of the airport also has ARFF.

Thanks to the members of Station #9 for the tour.
