Abstract:

This technical effort justified fire protection research and development RD requirements that are unique to the fire departments operating at Cape Canaveral Air Station CCAS, Florida, and Vandenberg Air Force Base VAFB, California. Operational uniqueness was established by the mission requirement of these fire departments to conduct fire suppression, rescue andor hazardous material HAZMAT emergency response operations involving the extremely toxic and explosive hypergolic propellants used in space lift vehicles and satellites. The technical approach employed an operational hazard analysis of space launch and payload processing facilities and operations to determine emergency response environments. The final products are a technical report, five 5 draft Operational Requirements Documents ORDs, a draft Purchase Description PD, and a draft HAZMAT Emergency Response Plan for civilian contractors.
