You should have taken a tour of a nearby airport fire fighting facility. During your visit, you should gather information on the facility\’s approach to response planning, mutual aid agreements, extinguishing agents, equipment, manning, airport category and support, and fire fighter training.
Alternative: If you do not reside in the proximity of an airport, you may tour a local fire department with the goal of obtaining information on how that unit would react to a major aircraft accident in its area of responsibility.
Prepare your tour report on the information gathered during your facility tour, adhering to the following written assignment formatting guidelines: Times New Roman, 12pt, double-spaced. Papers must be grammatically sound and free of spelling errors. There is no minimum page number requirement. Your report will be submitted through Turnitin, a plagiarism detection tool.
I\’ll provide some info that I collected at my visit.
