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.
