Identify and isolate control systems

Control Measure Knowledge

Fire and rescue services will need to operate in and around aircraft for various reasons, including:

  • Aircraft ground incidents
  • Aircraft emergencies
  • Fuel spillages

Ordinarily, the pilot or engineers will shut down the aircraft systems. However, in an emergency situation some systems may still be active and will need to be controlled.

Isolation or control of aircraft systems is a task that needs to be carried out by trained personnel and is not ordinarily something that fire and rescue service personnel should be involved with.
