Introduction Safety of the staffs, customers, and properties has become a concern for every organization. They have been increased concern on the need to train and adopt strategic measures towards fire prevention and of safety through fire risks reduction. Aviation industry has also improved its safety measures to the staff as well as its properties. Fire and rescue services have put in place strategic ways of ensuring it reduces fire risks that may occur or take place. This is through following the set strategies and rules by CAA and other regulatory bodies in Aviation industry.
Therefore, the collaboration between the local fire and rescue services authority and Aviation fire and rescue services will enhance the fire safety within the local airport and the community as well as illustrated by National Fire Protection Association (2002). The report will analyze how the sharing of the information between fire and rescue services as well as combination of the services will increase the knowledge and skills in the local airport. It will identify various regulatory measures that have been in place by the aviation rescue and fire services as an effort to reduce the fire risks.
The report will also identify the way international standards and recommendations relate to aviation fire and rescue services towards the fire and safety. Such include CAA and AAIB. The report will also analyze the effectiveness of training and developing personnel within the aviation sector. It will also evaluate how the sharing of training facilities and knowledge will benefit the staff. The training will ensure that there is cross sharing of the knowledge among the fire crews in both aviation and fire services authority.
The report will also analyze the system appropriateness used to assess the Aviation Fire & Rescue service personnel performance. The report will also assess the storage, use and transport arrangements for the fuel within the airport cartilage. It will analyze the need to manage properly the fuel as well preventing contamination of fuel. Aerodromes Operations and the Licensing RequirementsOperations of Aerodromes Civil Aviation Authority (2011, CAP 168) argues that aerodrome is an area on water or land with equipments, installations and buildings included, that is anticipated to be utilized for partial or wholly arrival, departure and surface movement of an aircraft.
They are various terms that are used to illustrate several areas within an aerodrome; such include Aerodrome elevation that is highest point elevation of the area of landing. Apron is a defined area on a land aerodrome that is provided for aircraft stationing where embarkation and disembarkation of passengers takes place as illustrated by National Fire Protection Association (2002). The areas for landing and taking off should be very clear for all aircrafts as an appropriate measure of reducing the accidents that might occur.
License Requirements According to the CAA, the physical conditions on the apron, in the environs, and the maneuvering area of the aerodrome must meet the acceptable standards and an effective safety management system. The facilities and scales of equipments that used and provided for flying activities must meet the expected tasks or roles adequately as per CAA requirements as argued by Civil Aviation Authority (2011, CAP 168). Inspection officers from CAA usually visit the aerodrome to determine the extent to which it meets the required licensing requirements.
They asses the requirements compliance and audit safety management while assessing the people’s responsible for safety competence as argued by Civil Aviation Authority (2011, CAP 168).
