Abstract:

In order to develop minimum standards for airport fire fighting and rescue services complying with the intent of the Airport and Airway Development Act of 1970, a study was made of the needs for different categories of airports serving air carriers certificated by the Civil Aeronautics Board. The study consisted of a review of the state-of-the-art, analysis of accident reports, extrapolation of data from various sources, and discussions concerning these services with various owner and user oriented organizations. Recommendations are presented for adoption as the minimum requirements covering quantities and application rates for fire extinguishing agents, the number of vehicles to transport the agents, vehicle response times, manning and other related elements which comprise these services.
