I am honored to be invited back to FDIC for my third year, this time speaking on the expectations of the Engine Company when responding to aviation incidents. I had been considering this course for last year’s FDIC but wasn’t sure exactly how to phrase some of the issues.
I gave it another year and tested some of the content on other audiences and here we are.
Attendees of the 0830 class on Friday (you can sleep in tomorrow) will be given the opportunity to learn about aviation incidents both on the airfield and off, as well as how to handle an aircraft on the wheels and off. We won’t go deep into ARFF tactics since we’re focusing on the Engine Company response but we will cover the differences in responding with and without an ARFF element.
I’m not going to kill you with powerpoint or try to replace the 40 hour Basic ARFF class, just offer advice on how to handle a situation that is more common than active shootings and has the potential to cause massive disruption in your community. However, don’t think massive disaster, think more of a 70 passenger commuter jet making an emergency landing at a local airstrip used just for general aviation. Probably no ARFF there…what will you do?
