Organization: NFPA
Publication Date: 1 January 2018
Status: active
Page Count: 39
scope:

This standard contains the minimum requirements for aircraft rescue and fire-fighting (ARFF) services at airports. Requirements for other airport fire protection services are not covered in this document.

Purpose.

This standard is prepared for the use and guidance of those charged with providing and maintaining aircraft rescue and fire-fighting services at airports.

The principal objective of a rescue and fire-fighting service is to save lives.

The preparation for dealing with an aircraft accident/ incident occurring at, or in the immediate vicinity of, an airport is of primary importance because it is within this location that the greatest opportunity to save lives exists.

The need for extinguishing a fire can occur either immediately following an aircraft accident/incident, or at any time during rescue operations, and must be assumed at all times.

The most important factors bearing on effective rescue in a survivable aircraft accident are the training received, the effectiveness of the equipment, and the speed with which personnel and equipment designated for rescue and firefighting purposes can be put to use.
