Midway Phoenix Corporation maintained a full-time Fire Department. For each aircraft takeoff or landing, the Fire Department station trucks at the mid-apron of the active runway. After MPC’s departure from the island, on May 1, 2002, the Tanker Truck was no longer maintained. Another Fire Truck was taken to the junk yard, for transport to an Oahu Scrap Yard. Yet another Fire Truck was demolished, after a US Fish and Wildlife Employee took it for an unofficial joy ride. That same truck was also transported to an Oahu Scrap Yard.
