This study analyzed the structural firefighting requirements at Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base, located at Fayetteville, NC. The study requirements were 1 to evaluate present resources and requirements for structural fire protection and prevention, and 2 to determine if consolidation would result in substantial manpower or equipment reduction. Fire prevention protection consolidation was to be evaluated both as an integral part of a joint facilities engineering consolidation organization and as a stand-alone consolidation organization. The results of the study indicate that because of the widespread locations of the Air Force and Army airfields and mission- essential facilities, both installations are manned at the minimum acceptable level of structural firefighting companies. Consolidation of the individual fire protectionprevention activities will not significantly reduce required equipment, manpower, or facilities. At most, anticipated annual savings of 88, 801, or 4.6 percent, would result from the reduction of five supervisory positions after consolidation. However, these savings do not appear to warrant consolidation at this time, since command and reporting requirements will remain distinct until the entire RPMA organization at Ft Bragg and Pope AFB might be consolidated. This is pending the final result of the ongoing RPMA Consolidation Study.
