NFPA 403: Standard for Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Services at Airports, 2009 Edition
|Item # 40309|
NFPA 403 is revised to reflect FAA changes and new tactics in aircraft rescue and fire fighting. Make sure every airport is equipped for emergencies!
NFPA 403: Standard for Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Services at Airports addresses the minimum number of fire service vehicles and the amount of extinguishing agent vehicles must carry to the scene of an aircraft accident. The 2009 edition reflects FAA changes in airport category classification, based on scheduled service of aircraft with more than nine passenger seats.
Other major changes for 2009:
- First-time discussion on the use of specialized vehicles in fire suppression covers larger aircraft, such as Airbus A380s, that cannot be accessed by the use of ground ladders and normal ARFF vehicles.
- New Annex material addressing accident scenarios, and how location and other factors could influence a "worst case scenario" at a given airport.
- New Annex material assists airport operators in dealing with airport staffing, including discussion on how to conduct a task and resource analysis, and discussion of goals and objectives for ARFF staff.
Professionals responsible for fire safety at airports--and AHJs whose jurisdiction includes an airport of any size--need the 2009 NFPA 403 to ensure disaster and emergency preparedness. (Softbound, 29 pp., 2009)
