FIRE FIGHTING and RESCUE TECHNIQUES
|This 2nd Edition of Robert Docherty's standard
work of reference deals with the measures necessary to provide
adequate fire protection, fire fighting and rescue facilities at
places where aircraft take off and land. It begins by categorising
airports and aircraft from the viewpoint of those involved with
preventing or fighting fires or rescuing people from fires in such
places. New to this second edition, which has been thoroughly
revised, are: a chapter on safety procedures for fueling aircraft
for the transport of dangerous goods by air; and a chapter about
airport fire services and the importance of minimizing response
As before, this important reference volume sets out minimum standards which could be applied to any airport, aircraft or rescue and fire fighting service in the world. It belongs on the bookshelves of all those having a working involvement with fire safety and aviation.
