16 Airfield Familiarization The Airport Operations Area (AOA) is divided into two separate areas: Movement Area: the areas of the airport that are used for the taxiing, takeoff, and landing of aircraft. These areas consist of the runways and taxiways and are under the control of air traffic control. Non-Movement Area: these are all other areas of the airport. They include the aircraft parking ramps and Perimeter Road. Useful information for you to reference in an emergency. 16Friday, June 13, 2014

22 Aircraft Emergencies Set sequence of events: 1.Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) receives notification from pilot and picks up crash phone. 2.Live transmission on TAC1 800 MHz frequency. 3.ARFF and Operations units proceed to standby positions. 4.When aircraft lands, ARFF will inspect and clear. 5.Operations units will follow aircraft to parking. 22Friday, June 13, 2014

23 Alerts Alert 2, Alert 2. Aircraft is a Cessna 172, ten miles from the airport with a rough running engine. When ARFF units call into the airport ground frequency, they will be advised of souls onboard and fuel remaining. Alert = aircraft emergency situation 23Friday, June 13, 2014

24 Requests for Assistance Average 80 emergency requests for assistance a year from aircraft – 90% of these general aviation (non-airline) – Vast majority are non-events – Occasional gear-up landing – Rare fatal crashes Friday, June 13, 201424

25 Alert Classifications Alert 1 = possible emergency, not declared Alert 2 = declared aircraft emergency by pilot Alert 3 = aircraft crash – A, B, or C designation given after each alert A is 1-9 passengers B is 10-29 passengers C is 30 or more passengers Clearly, an Alert 3C is the most significant Different responses depending on type of alert 25Friday, June 13, 2014

26 Emergency Response Alert 3C situation, heavy reliance upon mutual aid Saving the most lives possible must be a team effort amongst all agencies – VCFS/ARFF – DBFD – EVAC – VCSO – DBPD – Airport Operations – FBI, TSA, DHS Friday, June 13, 201426
