Responding to Aircraft Emergencies

Responses to aircraft emergencies require unique strategies, tactics and of course planning. As the chief of a fire department with a busy airport, I have been the incident commander at 4 aircraft emergencies in the past several years. This class will provide a first hand account using case studies to provide valuable lessons learned. Using my departments policies and procedures I will provide ideas and guidance for setting SOPs for Aircraft incidents. Response considerations and basic operations (Extrication, Fire & EMS) will also be covered in the class. Many fire departments falsely believe these types of incidents are not a concern because they don’t have an airport in there district. However, these incident frequently occur away from airports and in nearby towns. It is always good to be prepared for the unexpected.
