Guide for Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Operations
NFPA 402 - Guide for Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Operations

1.1 Scope. 1.1.1 This guide provides information relative to aircraft rescue and fire-fighting operations and procedures for airport and structural fire departments. 1.1.2 Statistics indicate that approximately 80 percent of all major commercial aircraft accidents occur in the critical rescue and fire-fighting access area. This is the primary response area for airport-based ARFF services. Approximately 15 percent of the accidents occur in the approach areas. In such instances the community/mutual services could be the prime responders. 1.1.3 Some airport fire departments have the total fire prevention and fire protection responsibility for the entire airport, including structural fire-fighting responsibilities in terminal buildings, aircraft hangars, airport hotels, cargo buildings, and other facilities. Procedures for these fire prevention and protection operations are not covered in this guide.
