Section II familiarizes firefighters with the specific components of aircraft and the fire hazards associated with them. Section III describes emergency procedures, and gives illustrations of the general arrangement and the emergency procedures for typical aircraft.
This course provides firefighters with the correct procedures for rescuing personnel from burning aircraft and for fighting aircraft fires. Preservation of life and prevention of injury should be the first objective of all firefighters; the saving of aircraft is secondary.
