Airport Fire Fighting (ARFF) Equipment
In an airport ground emergency, the first responder’s initial mission is to increase the survivability of the passengers and crew on board by securing the aircraft against all hazards. Firefighting in this environment also involves structural fire suppression, evacuation and hazard mitigation. Due to the mass casualty potential of an aviation emergency, quick response is of the utmost importance. Airport firefighters are highly trained in the application of firefighting foams, dry chemical and clean agents to extinguish burning aviation fuel in and around an aircraft.
