Aircraft Accidents: A Practical Guide for Responders

by James Anderson, Robert Gill, Jeff Hawkins

Prepare for the most unexpected event-responding to an aircraft accident-with this practical guidebook.

Straight-forward and concise, this book prepares emergency responders in any type of agency or community for the successful response to aircraft accidents.

First responders will learn how to communicate and work effectively with the various agencies involved in a fire, crash, and post-fire environment.

An overview on airplane anatomy will familiarize responders with various types of aircraft and associated hazards, while a focus on preplanning, available resources, approach of the aircraft, and various safety and medical issues, arms responders with the necessary tools to mitigate the incident.

With technical clarity, Aircraft Accidents: A Practical Guide for Responders effectively reveals how the various emergency services can form into a unified command structure as a single team to respond to an aircraft accident.

  • Recounts real-life cases of downed aircraft to provide responders with insight into how these accidents occur and how to most effectively respond
  • Reinforces the importance of awareness of local area resources in order to fully understand the hazards and quickly respond to the issues on scene
  • Emphasizes multi-agency response and explains how these agencies work together to take full advantage of available resources for a successful outcome
  • Provides various preplanning checklists to ensure that responders are thoroughly prepared for an incident involving downed aircraft
  • Includes activities that set up typical scenarios of aircraft accidents for application of critical concepts presented in the text
  • Offers flexibility as a stand-alone text for aircraft hazards awareness and basic tactics courses, or as an excellent addition to any Fire Science, Incident Command, Hazardous Materials, Law Enforcement, or Disaster Planning curriculum
