Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. The differences between the ARFF standards issued by these organizations are identified and where information was available the basis for the standards is provided.
Part contains specific requirements for operators of airports with air carrier passenger service, including requirements for ARFF. Part is not applicable to heliports or to airports that: a. Since then, the regulation has been amended on several occasions and substantially revised in and Part requirements concerning aircraft rescue and fire fighting are found in Sections The requirements in 14 CFR Part are established by the Federal rulemaking process and codified in Federal regulations.
Prior to beginning the rulemaking process the FAA can seek input from interested parties. This can be done informally through public contact, participation on an industry committee or open forum, or formally through the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee.
Once the rulemaking process begins, e. The regulatory process generally starts with the development of a regulation that is published as an NPRM. The NPRM is published in the Federal Register and public comment is sought for a set comment period, typically 45 or 60 days. Once the public comment period closes, the FAA will evaluate all the comments and decide whether to withdraw the proposed rule, adopt it as a final rule, or adopt a revised rule to reflect the comments received.
A final rule may impose less burdensome requirements than the proposed rule, but cannot impose more stringent requirements than proposed in the NPRM without a supplemental notice and additional opportunity for public comment. The proposed rule will generally not be adopted unless the benefits of the rule outweigh its costs.
If the final version of the rule has a benefit-cost ration greater than one, the agency may decide to issue the rule. The various requirements contained in the final rule then become required for entities and. For Part , this includes certificated airport operators and their employees. The FAA also develops and publishes standards in both advisory circulars and engineering briefs. These standards show an acceptable means of complying with the requirements of the rule, but can have regulatory effect only if incorporated by reference in an agency regulation.
The standards may also be required as a condition of FAA grant agreements. If an airport operator is using Federal funds for airport development, the operator is required as a condition of the grant to comply with the standards set forth in the Advisory Circulars and engineering briefs that apply to the project.
Consequently, these standards are used by airport operators, consultants and contractors in designing airport projects, putting together specifications for the procurement of airport equipment, and in meeting the requirements of the airport certification program Part Individuals, airport operators, manufacturers, or trade associations may request that a new standard be developed or an existing one be changed.
In some cases, the FAA may contract with an organization or consultant to investigate a particular problem and propose viable solutions. The agency generally reviews existing Advisory Circulars on a 5-year schedule to consider the need for revision. The FAA may decide to change an existing advisory circular or issue a new one, as appropriate.
It may do this in-house or it may call a meeting with industry to consider a change to the existing standards. Once there is agreement to add or change or, in some cases, to delete a standard, the FAA will produce a draft change to the appropriate advisory circular. If the standard is very specialized or intended only as an interim standard, the FAA may issue it in the form of an engineering brief. Anyone may comment on the draft. The FAA will consider all comments received during the comment period and prepare a disposition of the comments.
Based upon the comments received, the draft change may be withdrawn, modified to address the comments received, or issued as originally proposed. The final advisory circular change is approved by the appropriate Office Director for engineering standards, the Director of Airport Safety and Standards and reviewed for legal sufficiency by the Office of Chief Counsel. The principal body concerned with the development of technical standards and other provisions is the Air Navigation Commission.
Its primary role is to advise the ICAO council on air navigation issues. It is composed of fifteen experts with appropriate qualifications and experience in various fields of aviation.
Its members are nominated by Contracting States and are appointed by the Council. They are expected to function as independent experts and not as representatives of their States. ICAO Annex 14, paragraph 1. Along with the request is the submittal of a discussion paper to the Working Group and a presentation of supportive evidence.
If the majority of the Working Group feels the Discussion Paper [proposal] has merit, then the Working Group will either accept the presented arguments or may ask for more supportive evidence to determine a new or revised Standard or Recommended Practice.
Once the Working Group has considered the change and agreed to it, the chair will submit the proposal to the Aerodrome Panel, which directs the various Working Groups. If the Aerodrome Panel accepts it, then the item will go up the chain of command within ICAO for further discussion and approval or disapproval.
Once the ICAO approves the change, the item is sent to all the various member countries who will then be asked to vote on the measure. If a majority of countries vote to adopt the Standard or Recommended Practice or change to the SARP, then the change is made and given an effective date. This process can take up to 2 or 3 years. In setting standards and recommendations that apply to airports throughout the world, ICAO recognizes that all countries or all airports within a country may not be able to comply with those standards and recommendations.
The reasons for non-compliance vary but often are related to the economic feasibility of the standard including the cost to implement and the expected benefit to be received.
For this reason, countries may adopt or not adopt ICAO standards and recommendations. If a country does not adopt a. The NFPA develops, publishes and disseminates more than consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and other risks.
These codes are developed by technical committees and are adopted and enforced throughout the world. NFPA standards are written for airports of all sizes and types of operations, e. NFPA standards apply to airport operators if the state where the airport is located or the airport operator has adopted those standards.
This Call for Proposals is a public notice asking for any interested party to submit specific written proposals on an existing document or a committee-approved new draft document. The responsible Technical Committee or Panel holds a meeting to consider and act on all the submitted Proposals. The committee or panel may also develop its own Proposals. Once the ROP becomes available, there is a day comment period during which anyone may submit a Public Comment on the proposed changes documented in the ROP.
The committee or panel reconvenes at the end of the comment period and acts on all public Comments. All of this information is compiled into a second Report, called the Report on Comments ROC , which, like the ROP, is published and made available for public review for a seven-week period.
The performance of such an analysis is left to the discretion of the jurisdiction or authority that decides to adopt the NFPA standard. Table 1 shows how these apply to passenger service in terms of aircraft seating capacity for scheduled and non-scheduled operations and the number of airports in each class.
Effectively, a Class I airport can serve all sizes of aircraft e. Table 1. The length of the longest scheduled aircraft serving the airport with more than five scheduled departures a day determines the Index: 1. Index A airports serve air carrier aircraft less than 90 feet in length 2.
Index B airports serve air carrier aircraft at least 90 feet in length but less than feet 3. Index C airports serve air carrier aircraft at least feet in length but less than feet 4. Index D airports serve air carrier aircraft at least feet in length but less than feet 5.
However, Class III airports may substitute an alternate procedure using a fire fighting. This procedure is outlined in The first 3 categories describe smaller airports that do not have air carrier commercial service based on the FAA equivalent. Table 2 compares the manner in which all three standards categorize airports using differences in aircraft size. Table 2. Aircraft Length ft.
However, the actual number of vehicles may be affected by the response time standards, since meeting response times can require more than one ARFF station. These are the physical areas in which fire fighting is expected to take place. The amounts of extinguishing agents to control and to extinguish a fire are determined separately. The quantities are named and defined as follows. The equipment and techniques to be used should be capable of controlling the fire in the PCA in 1 minute.
This risk factor is a composite of the occupant load, the potential internal fire load, flammable liquid fuel capacity and fuselage length and width. Careful consideration of all these factors allows the identification of a meaningful operational objective, that is, the area to be rendered fire free controlled or extinguished.
This quantity of water, called Q3, is based on the need for hand lines to be used for interior fire fighting. The actual amount of water comprising Q3 is found in Table B. NFPA adopted the Q3 water quantity in since it believed that there was an insufficient amount of water to launch interior attacks once the external fire had been contained.
It is the total amount of water required or the sum of Q1, Q2 and Q3 to properly mix with the foam concentrate carried on the trucks. Table 4. Basically, it is based on a Task and Resource Analysis Model that was used to determine the minimum number of qualified personnel required to deal with an aircraft accident or incident.
Figure 1 shows the staffing required by the NPFA. Figure 1. Although there are variations in response times and areas among the three organizations, all three organizations provide that the demonstration of compliance be done in optimum conditions, i. FAA Section When Part was originally adopted in , the 3-minute response was considered a reasonable time due to the rollover potential. The ARFF vehicles of that era had a high center of gravity and slow acceleration speeds.
Other ARFF vehicles shall arrive at intervals not exceeding 30 seconds. At that time, the NFPA documents included a response time of 3 minutes.
The fire prevention service and the fire station at Dortmund Airport are manned by part-time and full-time firefighters. The team of part-time firefighters, also known as LZ 30, has the same status as a voluntary fire service. It currently consists of 33 employees of the ground handling service who have FI training basic training for the voluntary fire service. During operating hours, six employees hold positions in the fire service alongside their normal jobs as ground handlers. These employees work in the immediate vicinity of the eastern fire station. In the event of an alarm, they man their vehicles and are deployed by the officer in charge alongside their full-time colleagues.

See also Subpart and Advisory For ease of cross-reference, the divisions and numbers of the standards are assigned to correspond to the regulations, therefore, Standard The principal objective in providing an aircraft fire-fighting service is to save lives in the event of an aircraft emergency on the airport or aerodrome. In this context, an aircraft fire-fighting service is a contingent resource tasked with the primary responsibility of providing a fire free egress route for the evacuation of passengers and crew following an aircraft accident. This standard is not intended to limit the fire-fighting service from providing services in addition to that of aircraft fire-fighting at the airport or aerodrome, nor to prevent it from dealing with other occurrences. Part of this reserve may be carried on the fire-fighting vehicles. The reserve shall include sufficient propellant gas to utilize this reserve complementary agent.
ICAO certified. A fluorine-free foam, enriched in polysaccharide and alkyl ether sulfate, offering a more stable and effective foam on a wider variety of hydrocarbon fires. They provide fire control, fast extinguishment combined with excellent burnback resistance. The foam forms a foam blanket above fuel and sticks on vertical surfaces as body and fuselage to create thermal insulation. It forms a foam blanket which spreads quickly above the fuel to seal the spill surface and cuts off oxygen supply, suppresses fuel vapours and preventing reignition. The foam blanket has long drainage time. The foam sticks on vertical surfaces on aircraft parts as the fuselage and the body, providing thermal insulation which allows immediate protection and passenger evacuation.
The centre also provides a whole range of theoretical and practical training courses, which can either be booked as a package or as individual items. To the booking form. The consulting and advisory services include, for example, planning for an airport emergency, disaster management and aircraft recovery operations. The training for fire protection assistants involves the basic training and the theoretical and practical training for using hand-held fire extinguishers. A gas-fired, metre-long mock-up provides the opportunity to simulate various types of fires next to and inside aircraft. The fire containers provide the opportunity to practise how to act safely in realistic circumstances that are similar to actual operations. Experienced paramedic instructors, supported by emergency response doctors, guide candidates through the training course.
Роскошной рыжеволосой девицей. Мой Бог. Это была настоящая красотка. - Спутница? - бессмысленно повторил Беккер. - Проститутка, что. Клушар поморщился: - Вот .
Росио покачала головой: - Не могу. - Почему? - рассердился Беккер. - У меня его уже нет, - сказала она виноватым тоном.
Что-нибудь, что можно было бы вычесть одно из другого. - Три минуты! - послышался крик. - А сверхкритическая масса? - предложила Соши. - Тут сказано, что сверхкритическая масса плутония составляет тридцать пять и две десятых фунта. - Вот именно! - крикнул Джабба.
Они мои лучшие клиенты. Беккер чувствовал, как ее глаза буквально впиваются в. Он решил сменить тактику: - Я из специальной группы, занимающейся туристами. Отдайте кольцо, или мне придется отвести вас в участок и… - И что? - спросила она, подняв брови в притворном ужасе.
