2 Who is Required to Complete the Airport Firefighter Online Requalification? Qualified Airport Firefighter Instructors Qualification # 04Q0076

3 Airport Firefighter (AFF) Online Requalification Process AFF Instructors must complete the online requalification on or prior to April 31, 2011 Once the PowerPoint and NFPA 1003 Matrix have been thoroughly reviewed, the instructor will fill out the completion form located at: Airport Firefighter Requalification Completion Form and mail it to the provided address Forms must be postmarked no later than April 31, 2011

4 Airport Firefighter Certification Class Airport FF (FIP 4701): hrs (entire course) This course will present the firefighter with the knowledge, skills, and ability to satisfy the requirements of Chapter 5 of NFPA 1003: Standard for Airport Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications.

6 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations General The responsibilities and priorities of the Airport Firefighter have a direct impact on other emergency service personnel and civilians before, during and after incident operations. The Airport Fire Fighter must be aware of all the various aspects of their role as an Airport Firefighter. A brief review of the objectives sited in Chapters 1 through 4 of NFPA 1003 will provide the Airport Firefighter candidate with an accurate concept of what will be expected of them for this certification. No practical skill evaluations

7 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations Airport Familiarization In order to provide a successful and safe response to any airport incident, the instructor must make clear to the AFF candidate the necessity to familiarize himself with the airport layout and facilities. This obviously requires studying and pre- planning. The instructor should discuss in detail as much of the different airport specifics that the candidate must study as possible. No practical skill evaluations

8 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations Aircraft Familiarization Good, concise communication skills at an aircraft incident are a must. The instructor should emphasize to the AFF candidate the necessity for aircraft familiarization in order to effectively relay incident information to the IC. Develop incident scenarios and have the candidates simulate first arrival. Have them practice relaying the proper information so that an appropriate attack plan and operation tactics can be properly developed. No practical skill evaluations

9 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations Personal Protective Equipment Proper selection, donning and doffing techniques, use, and maintenance are very important aspects of the AFFs job, many lives depend on it! The instructor must emphasize the importance of PPE and the proper protection it affords the AFF to do the job correctly and safely. The instructor should provide adequate examples of AFF PPE for the students to learn with and practice on. No practical skill evaluations

10 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations Apparatus and Equipment The AFF must understand the equipment to do his duty safely and correctly. The instructor should use this lesson as a hands-on lesson for the AFF candidate. Appropriate ARFF vehicles should be available for the candidates to inspect. The candidates should identify and locate various tools and equipment that will be required for use at an ARFF incident. The instructor should have the candidates demonstrate the use of various tools and equipment as well as the various foam application procedures. 1 Practical Skill Evaluation: Equipment

11 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations IMS and Communications The instructor must emphasize the importance of an operational Incident Management System (IMS) to effectively control an airport accident / incident. A working knowledge and understanding of the IMS by the candidate is imperative if the AFF is to play a functional role during an actual emergency. The instructor should set up mock incident scenarios so that the candidates can practice proper communication skills with the incident commander, command post, and the control tower.

12 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations IMS and Communications (contd) 3 Practical Skill Evaluations: Response Procedures, Communications, and Control Tower Communications

13 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations Response Standby Operations Airport stand-by operations are just as important to overall airport safety as mitigating an actual incident. The instructor should stress that following proper procedures during stand-by can often stop an incident before it starts. 1 Practical Skill Evaluation: Unsafe Conditions

14 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations Fuel Fire Extinguishment The instructor should be prepared to deliver hands on applications for the AFF candidates. The above JPRs that this lesson addresses are all 'demonstration' JPRs. It is essential that the candidates have a working knowledge of the fuel fires that are discussed in order to complete any airport incident safely and efficiently. 3 Practical Skill Evaluations: Extinguisher Suppression, Handline Suppression, Turret Suppression, and Three Dimensional Fire,

15 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations Aircraft Extinguishment This lesson plan deals with what the 'fire' in Airport Fire and Rescue is all about. The instructor should be prepared to deliver hands on applications for the AFF candidates. The above JPRs that this lesson addresses are all 'demonstrate' JPRs. It is essential that the candidates have a working knowledge of the fuel fires that are discussed in order to complete any airport incident safely and efficiently. 4 Practical Skill Evaluations: Interior Hose Advancement, Engine/APU Fires, Wheel Fires, and Ventilation

16 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations Interior Rescue Operations This lesson plan outlines the proper procedures and methods for why most fire fighters join the fire service. This covers the nuts and bolts of what the fire service is all about. Attack a structure, force entry, suppress the fire, ventilate, search and ultimately rescue to save lives. While learning to accomplish these tasks, the instructor must emphasize safety as well as efficiency. Try to set up demonstrations and practical applications as often as possible while teaching and discussing the various techniques and methodologies involved in interior rescue operations. 3 Practical Skill Evaluations: Evacuation, Victim Management, and Triage

17 Airport Firefighter Course Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Practical Skill Evaluations Salvage and Overhaul Once rescue and suppression operations have been accomplished at an aircraft incident, the task of overhaul and salvage begins. The AFF must conduct overhaul and salvage operations thoroughly and with a great deal of care so as not to disturb evidence. The instructor should also emphasize safety when conducting overhaul and salvage operations. 2 Practical Skill Evaluations: Evidence Preservation and Overhaul

19 Firefighter Response to Aviation Emergencies (FFRAE) The NC Office of State Fire Marshal recognized the need for introductory / awareness level training for aviation emergency response The FFRAE course was developed by a committee comprised of civilian, Department of Defense, volunteer and municipal firefighters who deal with on a routine basis and specialize in aviation response The course focuses on the basics of what an individual in a structural fire department needs to know in order to operate effectively at a general aviation aircraft incident

20 Firefighter Response to Aviation Emergencies (FFRAE) FFRAE is only to be delivered by qualified Airport Firefighter Instructors FFRAE is not a certification class FFRAE is an 8 – 12 hour course broken down into five (5) modules: 1.Introduction 2.Airfield Familiarization 3.Aircraft Familiarization 4.Response, Suppression, and Rescue 5.Incident Command

21 Firefighter Response to Aviation Emergencies (FFRAE) FFRAE is not designed to make anyone an expert in aircraft rescue and firefighting. The purpose of FFRAE is to give structural firefighters a degree of confidence and competence in operating at an airport in their response district or in handling the average general aviation incident Instructors will have to gauge the ability of each class and prepare / deliver the material accordingly Research the departments airfield/airport to gain an understanding of their unique response issues or concerns
