The plane landed safely and no one was injured.
This is a perfect opportunity to assess how the ARFF and PFD did in responding to a real world issue.
I have discussed this before.
You see, at any point in time, the Airport fire department is manned by 2 people. 2 Trucks, 2 people.
The Mayor says "But that doesn't take into account Station 3 and Station 6 at each end of the runway." He is right. That adds 3 men on 2 engines to the response.
So a Boeing 737 declares an engine emergency with 105 lives on board and is forced to make a emergency landing at Pensacola Regional Airport and PFD sends a MAXIMUM of:
- 8 firefighters
- 2 ARFF trucks
- 2 regular engines
- the Fire engines that responded,
- manpower on each responding engine,
- ARFF units responding and manpower on each responding engine.
- response times,
- incident report,
- time on scene,
- equipment dispatch logs for the entire PFD for 2 hrs prior to the incident and 2 hours after the incident.
- The name of the on scene commander and his entire training history.
- In addition, I request training summaries for each person responding to the scene in aircraft fire techniques and procedures.
