EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) Training Program is a result of a Carrier Flag Level Steering Committee on Aircraft Fire Fighting Improvements which, in 1983, tasked the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIRSYSCOM) to research and report on methods to improve training, hazards awareness, and on-scene leadership. While the results of the study determined that courses such as C-822-2010, Aviation Boatswain Mate, Aircraft Handling (ABH) Class A1 School; J-495-0413, Shipboard Aircraft Firefighting; and underway training drills were sufficient to produce a fairly disciplined "supportive aircraft firefighter," this training program did not provide for effective team training. The study also identified a need to provide advanced training for supervisory personnel in leadership principles, equipment usage, tactics, and procedures for ARFF and salvage. The ARFF Program is in Phase III (Production, Deployment, and Operational Support) of the Acquisition Process.

Shipboard Aircraft Firefighting Team Training was established and is required for all carrier crash crews once every 24 months, or when there is a 40% turnover in personnel. A course of instruction and Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) code 7011 were established for the Aircraft Firefighting and Salvage Specialist to support the advanced training requirements for supervisory personnel. This NEC and course have been revised to support shipboard training only. A new NEC code 7012, Fire Protection Apprentice (Shore Based), was established in Fiscal Year (FY) 99 with a course taught at Goodfellow Air Force Base (AFB) San Angelo, Texas.

The latest version of the Department of Defense Instruction (DoDINST) 6055.6, promulgated in December 1994, defines the Department of Defense (DoD) Fire and Emergency Service Program. This instruction impacts Navy shore-based training and certification requirements. The Navy's implementation procedures of those requirements are contained in this Navy Training System Plan. To meet the DoD requirements for certification, the United States Marine Corps (USMC) uses the DoD Firefighting Academy at Goodfellow AFB, to train all USMC personnel in course X3ABR3E731-008, Fire Protection Apprentice Course, which was Ready For Training (RFT) in October 1998. All shore-based billets are E-4 or higher and this school requires three years of obligated service. Training Systems Program Manager, Air (PMA) 205 has requested that Total Force Manpower Management System (TFMMS) packages be submitted by each shore-based Naval activity identifying NEC 7012 requirements.

As a result of the Base Realignment and Closure Act of 1993, all Aircraft Firefighting Training for ABH personnel (as a class), Shipboard Aircraft Firefighting Team Training, and Aircraft Firefighting and Salvage Specialist Training moved to Pensacola, Florida, in October 1996, and was RFT in their new facilities in January 1997.

The USMC ceased training for Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 7051 at the Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC), Millington, Tennessee, in September 1995. They began training at the DoD Firefighting Academy at Goodfellow Air Force Base in October 1995 using the DoD approved Fire Protection Apprentice training curriculum.

Drills are an important aspect of firefighting training. The Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization, (NATOPS) 80-R-0014 requires each firefighter to fight two fires per month to maintain proficiency. However, environmental concerns have closed almost all Navy and Marine Corps Air Station "fire pits" causing this training requirement to be waived for several years. These actions have adversely impacted readiness and effective FY00, PMA251 is no longer issuing any waivers for this training.

Training Systems Program Manager, PMA205, has contracted to procure five Mobile Aircraft Firefighting Training Devices (MAFTD) since FY97. PMA205 anticipates contracting for 20 to 30 MAFTDs total by FY07. In FY97, the Naval Air Station (NAS) Norfolk, Virginia, Fire Department received the initial MAFTD to be shared within their geographical area. In FY99 a second MAFTD was contracted for the NAS Atsugi, Japan, Fire Department and was delivered in July 2000 to be shared within their geographical area. In FY00, three additional trainers were purchased. Two of these were delivered to NATTC Pensacola, Florida, in August 2000. The Pensacola MAFTDS are to meet an emergent requirement (Airman Apprentice School moving to NATTC Pensacola) and provide a large cost savings for upgrading the facility at NATTC Pensacola. The last trainer under contract for FY00 by PMA205 will be delivered to the NAS North Island, California, Fire Department to be shared within their geographical area. In FY99, a sixth MAFTD was purchased with congressional funds for NAS Mayport, Florida. A Training Device Requirements Document (TDRD) and Performance Specification was developed by PMA205 by evaluating the device at NAS Norfolk. PMA205 is in the process of developing a logistics package for an acquisition program for future buys. The Fleet Project Team met 1-2 August 2000 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, to establish and prioritize, by area, where future MAFTDS will be placed.

When available, non-course related shipboard team training utilizing the MAFTDS may be scheduled with the recipient activity. PMA205 and PMA251 have developed and implemented Computer-Based Training (CBT) that supports ARFF training aboard aircraft carriers. This CBT provides aircraft carriers with an excellent source of refresher training for ABH personnel returning to sea duty and an onboard training program for all personnel working the flight deck. This CBT also supports the ARFF schools as an additional resource supporting their curriculum aboard amphibious type ships. PMA205 and PMA251 funded for the update of the existing CBT to include amphibious type ships and will be RFT in April 2001.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The United States Navy (USN) and the United States Marine Corps (USMC) must ensure each ship and shore activity supporting aircraft operations have highly trained and qualified ARFF and salvage personnel assigned. The ARFF Training Program is designed to ensure each individual training requirement set forth by Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization (NATOPS) Manuals and Department of Defense Instruction (DoDINST) 6055.6 has been established, and specific billets have been identified to receive the necessary training to support those requirements.

DoDINST 6055.6 defines the Fire and Emergency Service Program for the Department of Defense (DoD). This instruction requires all DoD military, civilian, and contract firefighting personnel participate in the DoD certification program outlined in the instruction and DoD Fire and Emergency Services Certification Program manual, DoD 6055.6-M.

All USMC formal aircraft firefighting and rescue training is provided at the DoD Firefighting Academy at Goodfellow Air Force Base (AFB) San Angelo, Texas. USMC operational, training, and qualification requirements are specifically supported by the DoD school. Follow-on training has been established under Marine Corps Order 3500.19, Chapter 7 of Volume 6, and supports Military Occupational Specialties (MOSs) 7051 and 7002. The Marine Corps Combat Development Center at Quantico, Virginia, has assumed responsibility for all USMC firefighting and rescue training.

The ARFF training program described in this document provides the Navy with personnel trained with the basic knowledge required to be a supportive aircraft firefighter, a skilled member of an aircraft firefighting and rescue team, and as a leader and subject matter expert in aircraft firefighting, rescue, and salvage operations, both ashore and afloat. They are trained and qualified in using state-of-the-art firefighting tactics, technology, fire combatant systems, and equipment.

Additional operational requirements and directives have established training requirements and courses for aircraft firefighting. These courses are primarily for personnel assigned to or deployed on aviation and aviation capable ships. Descriptions of these courses are provided in this NTSP to show how they support the overall training program.

2. Foreign Military Sales. No Foreign Military Sales are planned at this time but there may be future opportunities. Contact Program Manager, AIR (PMA) 205 for additional information.

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. ARFF operations are firmly established by the NATOPS Publications NAVAIR 00-80R-14, titled U.S. Navy Aircraft Firefighting and Rescue Manual, and NAVAIR 00-80R-14-1, titled U.S. Navy Aircraft Emergency Rescue Information Manual. Shore activities also fall under the Naval Facility (NAVFAC) P-1021, Firefighting Facility Manual (Ashore), various National Fire Codes, and National Fire Protection Agency documents. Aircraft salvage operations are firmly established in NATOPS Publications NAVAIR 00-80R-19, titled U.S. Navy Aircraft Crash and Salvage Operations (Afloat), and NAVAIR 00-80R-20, titled U.S. Navy Aircraft Crash and Salvage Operations Manual (Ashore). DoDINST 6055.6 provides overall policy guidance for all DoD fire emergency response.

The ARFF training program provides training in all phases of aircraft firefighting, aircrew rescue, Hazardous Materials (HAZMATs) response, aircraft salvage, and emergency first aid. HAZMAT includes ordnance, aviation fuels, special oxidizing fuels, oils, fluids, oxygen, and batteries. HAZMATs are a key element in personnel and environmental safety. In addition to providing individual training, the ARFF training program provides team training in a realistic simulated flight deck environment for shipboard crash, fire, and rescue teams for carriers, amphibious ships, and aviation capable ships, such as frigates and destroyers, as required.

Navy ABH personnel and Limited Duty Officers with Navy Officer Billet Codes (NOBC) 6310 and Chief Warrant Officers with NOBC 7310 direct all phases of aircraft firefighting, rescue, and salvage operations in the event of an aircraft crash afloat, and at activities ashore where assigned. They are also responsible for providing training and supervised drills supporting all phases of aircraft firefighting, rescue, and salvage operations to personnel assigned to assist in these operations.

Upon completion of Course Identification Number (CIN) C-822-2010, Aviation Boatswain's Mate Aircraft Handling (ABH) Class A1, or J-495-0413, Shipboard Aircraft Firefighting, the individual will be a fairly disciplined supportive aircraft firefighter. The latter school is not limited to ABH personnel and may be attended by any Navy rating, as required, when assigned to aviation ships.

CIN J-495-0414, Air Capable Ship Helicopter Fire Fighting Team Training, provides aircraft firefighting team training for aviation capable ships such as frigates and destroyers.

Those completing C-780-2012, Aircraft Firefighting Shipboard Team Training, will be part of a skilled, disciplined, highly effective shipboard firefighting and rescue team. This training is required once every 18 to 24 months for aircraft carrier and amphibious type ship aviation shipboard firefighting teams.

ABH personnel who complete C-780-2013, Aviation Boatswain's Mate Aircraft Handling Advanced Class C1, will be awarded NEC 7011, and will be skilled in the leadership required for shipboard aircraft firefighting, rescue, and salvage operations. They will be assigned to key positions onboard aircraft carriers and amphibious type aviation ships. This is advanced training and is provided to personnel in paygrades E-5 through E-9.

ABH personnel who complete the DoD course of instruction X3ABR3E731-006, Fire Protection Apprentice-Shore Based, will be awarded NEC 7012. These personnel will be certified as a Firefighter I and II, HAZMAT response, and as an Airport Firefighter within the guidelines of DoDINST 6055.6 and DoD 6055.6-M. This is advanced training and will be provided to personnel in paygrades E-4 through E-9 assigned to shore activity firefighting billets.

USMC personnel will be designated as Aircraft Firefighting and Rescue Specialist with MOS 7051 upon completion of the DoD course X3ABR3E731-008, Fire Protection Apprentice Course. Personnel are assigned to various Marine Wing Support Squadrons and Marine Corps Air Stations and Facilities to support shore operations only.

Drills are an important aspect of firefighting training. The Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization, NATOPS 80-R-0014 requires each firefighter fight two fires per month to maintain proficiency. However, environmental concerns have closed almost all Navy and Marine Corps Air Station "fire pits" causing this training requirement to be waived for several years. These actions have adversely impacted readiness and effective Fiscal Year (FY) 00, PMA251 no longer issues waivers for this training.

Training Systems Program Manager, PMA205, has contracted to procure five Mobile Aircraft Firefighting Training Devices (MAFTD) since FY97. PMA205 anticipates contracting for 20 to 30 MAFTDs total by FY07. In FY97, the Naval Air Station (NAS) Norfolk, Virginia, Fire Department received the initial MAFTD to be shared within their geographical area. In FY99 a second MAFTD was contracted for the NAS Atsugi, Japan, Fire Department and was delivered in July 2000 to be shared within their geographical area. In FY00, three additional trainers were purchased. Two of these were delivered to NATTC Pensacola, Florida, in August 2000. The Pensacola MAFTDS are to meet an emergent requirement (Airman Apprentice School moving to NATTC Pensacola) and provide a large cost savings for upgrading the facility at NATTC Pensacola. The last trainer under contract for FY00 by PMA205 will be delivered to the NAS North Island, California, Fire Department to be shared within their geographical area. In FY99, a sixth MAFTD was purchased with congressional funds for NAS Mayport, Florida. A Training Device Requirements Document (TDRD) and Performance Specification was developed by PMA205 by evaluating the device at NAS Norfolk. PMA205 is in the process of developing a logistics package for an acquisition program for future buys. The Fleet Project Team met 1-2 August 2000 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, to establish and prioritize, by area, where future MAFTDS will be placed.

2. Physical Description. As a non-hardware program, there are no physical components other than training facilities, devices, and equipment. The only new equipment is the MAFTDS.

3. New Development Introduction

a. United States Marine Corps. The USMC has established training at Goodfellow AFB using the DoD Firefighting Academy. Course X3ABR3E731-008, Fire Protection Apprentice Course, provides USMC personnel with the training needed to meet the requirements of MOS 7051. This course was Ready For Training (RFT) in October 1995. USMC Air Wing personnel that detach aboard amphibious class ships are required to attend J-495-0413, Shipboard Aircraft Firefighting.

b. United States Navy. The USN ARFF and Salvage Training Program includes several separate training courses that provide training in different aspects of aircraft firefighting, rescue, and salvage.

Note: The following courses are required by other operational and training requirements. These are described to show the relationship to ARFF courses supported by this NTSP. These courses are active and do not require introduction.

(1) J-495-0413, Shipboard Aircraft Firefighting. This course provides all personnel, both USN and USMC, that deploy aboard aircraft carriers or amphibious type ships with basic ARFF knowledge and skills. This training is conducted onboard as needed. The catastrophic nature of aircraft fires aboard aviation ships has led to a requirement for all aviation personnel and others associated with aircraft or assigned to the Air Department to attend this course prior to deployment. This course is managed through the Type Commanders (TYCOMs). The requirements for this course are met by C-822-2010, Aviation Boatswain's Mate Aircraft Handling Class A, and graduates need not attend J-495-0413 to meet TYCOM requirements.

(2) J-495-0414, Air Capable Ship Helicopter Firefighting Team Training. This course provides Navy personnel with firefighting team training for ships such as frigates and destroyers. Again, the catastrophic nature of aircraft fires aboard ships has led to a requirement for all personnel associated with aircraft operations or assigned to the Air Department to attend this course prior to deployment. This course is managed through the TYCOM. This training is currently active and conducted onboard as needed.

(3) C-822-2010, Aviation Boatswain's Mate Aircraft Handling Class A. This course includes 47 hours of aircraft firefighting training. This course is currently active at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Pensacola.

Note: The following courses are fully supported by this NTSP, and the status of each course is indicated.

(4) C-780-2013, Aviation Boatswain's Mate Aircraft Handling Advanced Class C1. This course for NEC 7011 has undergone a major revision to eliminate all shore ARFF materials. Since revision, this course provides leadership skills training for shipboard ARFF and salvage operations. This modified course was RFT at NATTC Pensacola in October 1998 and is currently active.

(5) C-780-2012, Aircraft Firefighting Shipboard Team Training. This course provides specialized, realistic, team training for aircraft carrier and amphibious type aviation ships. This course is currently active at NATTC Pensacola.

(6) X3ABR3E731 006, Fire Protection Apprentice (Shore Based). This course, taught at Goodfellow AFB, provides the Navy with DoD certified Firefighter I and II, HAZMAT operations, and Airport Firefighter personnel. Upon completion of this training, the individual is awarded NEC 7012. This course is currently active at Goodfellow AFB. Student quotas are currently available to the Navy.

(7) C-780-2020, Carrier Deck Indoctrination and Firefighting. This course is CBT, using Interactive Courseware (ICW) developed to supplement existing schoolhouse firefighting curricula and for use on aircraft carriers as onboard training. This system provides training on command organization and responsibilities, extinguishing agents and equipment, HAZMAT and flammable materials, flight deck layout and personnel, firefighting systems and equipment operation, safety equipment and procedures, firefighting, rescue, and salvage techniques specific to Aircraft Carrier (CV) and CV Nuclear (CVN) ships. The system also provides student testing and tracking, using a Computer-Managed Instruction (CMI) program, allowing the system's administrator to assign students to courses, record each student's test scores, track completed lessons or modules, and print reports on student activity. The goals of this system are to provide ABH personnel with occupational and safety training both in the schoolhouse environment and aboard aircraft carriers, and provide all Air Department personnel with firefighting awareness and safety training. This training has been introduced into Airman Apprentice training at Naval Training Center (NTC) Great Lakes, Illinois, all AB class "A" and "C" Schools at NATTC Pensacola, and at each aircraft carrier in the fleet.

All components of this computer system are commercial off-the-shelf hardware consisting of an IBM Compatible PentiumÒ Central Processing Unit (CPU) with a minimum one Gigabyte (GB) hard drive storage, 16 Megabyte (MB) Random Access Memory (RAM), 3.5" floppy drive, keyboard, mouse, 8X (or better) Compact Disk Read Only Memory, video card with 2 MB video RAM, graphics card, and audio card. The authoring system used to develop the training is Microsoft Visual C++ä .

(8) Follow-on Program. A follow-on program is planned when funding becomes available. The Amphibious Ship CBT will provide initial and refresher training with testing on flight deck personnel, markings, firefighting equipment, firefighting organization, HAZMAT, helicopter and Harrier flight operations, and salvage. Upon completion of the development and validation of this update, the software will be delivered in April 2001.

c. Readiness Training (Drills). All USN and USMC firefighting activities are required by NATOPS to drill to maintain proficiency. A minimum of two live fire drills is required for each firefighter each month. Most of the training sites where this training was performed have been closed due to environmental constraints. There are several activities that have been able to build propane-fired training facilities. These have a large price tag, including Military Construction (MILCON) that has hindered other activities in acquiring these facilities. An affordable, environmental friendly solution became available and the Navy (PMA205) procured one for NAVSTA Norfolk. The MAFTD meets an immediate training shortfall for Naval Aviation Activities, where MAFTDS have been placed at recipient activities and shared with surrounding geographical locations. The intention is to take the training system directly to the activity requiring training, set up and be ready for training in under two hours. This eliminated MILCON funding requirements for individual activity training facilities.

4. Significant Interfaces. This training has demonstrated a significant impact on the environment, especially in areas of ground water and air contamination. In this regard, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements at the local, state, and federal levels must be considered. The most effective way ground water contamination can be suppressed is by draining firefighting facilities into large tanks with separators for reutilization, or collecting and disposing into the local sewer system. Sewage systems have a maximum quantity (expressed in Parts Per Million) of Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) that can be processed. This must be carefully monitored by training activities.

The Navy is working with the other services and the Federal Aviation Administration to find trainer alternatives, fuel alternatives, and smaller percentages of AFFF for existing and future trainers to lessen environmental impacts and continue to provide realistic training.

The use of propane for readiness training (drills) allows activities to fight training fires with water only. The effects on both water and air for this type Training Device (TD) are in keeping with EPA restrictions for the federal government and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Each state and local area where the Navy anticipates using the MAFTD will require state and local community EPA approval.

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. During the transition of training devices from NATTC Millington, Tennessee, to Pensacola, they were fitted with enhanced smoke abatement equipment to reduce smoke and hydrocarbon emissions. These trainers are in compliance with current Florida (state and local) EPA guidelines.

Firefighting vehicles and other agent application devices used in training are the same as those found on aviation ships and at shore activities. Aircraft, engine, aircraft debris, ordnance, and running fuel fire mock-ups with remote controls are used for practice and testing of student skills. Wind generating units are used to simulate actual flight deck environmental conditions.

Salvage training will use the same aircraft and equipment found on ships and at shore facilities to train personnel in salvage fundamentals, equipment operation, as well as analysis skills for supervisors.

Each student is trained in the proper use and care of specialized personal firefighting, rescue, and salvage equipment. All training evolutions are accomplished wearing proper gear required for safe firefighting, rescue, and salvage operations.

The MAFTD provides an effective tool for Fire Chiefs and Crash Boatswains to use in drilling crash crews and other personnel, improving and maintaining firefighting readiness to an acceptable level as required by NATOPS.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. Crash, rescue, and salvage operational procedures are established in the respective NATOPS manuals. During all flight operations ARFF personnel are in an immediate response posture. Ashore, this means ARFF equipment is manned and ready for immediate response from a position on the airfield that provides access to all aircraft operational areas, including runways. This is commonly known as the "hard stand." This posture is maintained whenever aircraft are operating at, or in the immediate airfield vicinity. ARFF equipment is strategically placed on the flight deck and manned during flight operations aboard carrier and amphibious ships. On aviation capable ships, fire hoses are manned around the flight deck during flight operations.

In the event of an aircraft crash, the primary mission of ARFF personnel is rescue. Secondary to this, they extinguish any fires and try to minimize fire damage to the aircraft, other aircraft, or equipment close by. Aboard ship, ARFF personnel must also consider damage control and prevention to the ship. Their last mission is to restore operational capability to the airfield or ship's flight deck, and salvage the aircraft. These functions are essential to the continued operational capability of any naval aviation activity ashore or afloat.

2. Maintenance Concept. This is a non-hardware program and, therefore, has no specific maintenance requirements. All firefighting equipment assigned to training facilities is maintained per existing directives for the equipment under the Planned Maintenance System in both surface and aviation communities. These include Naval Sea Systems Command, Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIRSYSCOM), and National Fire Protection Agency publications, regulations, and directives.

The maintenance of NATTC Pensacola firefighting TDs is accomplished through a Contractor Operation and Maintenance Support contract. The maintenance program for the MAFTD will be included.

3. Manning Concept. The manpower requirements for aviation ships are contained in each CV, CVN, or amphibious type Ship Manpower Document (SMD). Shore facility manning is based on each command's specific requirements. Many shore activities have firefighting services provided by the Federal Fire Service (civil servants) under NAVFAC. These civil servant billets will not be identified in this NTSP. Those activities where Navy ABH personnel are assigned have been carefully screened. Manpower is based on the equipment assigned and the hours of operation applying the recognized staffing standard provided in Chief of Naval Operations Instruction (OPNAVINST) 1000.16G.

The billet structure for Navy units will designate specific ABH personnel as Aircraft Firefighting and Salvage Specialists, NEC 7011, afloat, and Shore Based Airport and Aircraft Firefighter, NEC 7012, ashore. There are Naval Officer billets related to this program on each type aviation ship and at several shore activities. The NOBCs 6310 (Flight Deck Officer) and 7310 (Crash and Salvage Officer) are related to this program.

As a result of program requirements, the description of duties for NEC 7011 was changed to read:

Performs duties as team leader during shipboard aircraft fire and salvage evolutions. Conducts aircraft fire and salvage training activities for the ship. Performs preoperational inspections and operates shipboard aircraft firefighting systems and salvage equipment.

Each aircraft carrier will have five or six ABHs assigned with NEC 7011. Each Amphibious Assault Ship (General Purpose) (LHA), Amphibious Assault Ship (Multi-Purpose) (LHD), and the USS Inchon, which has been redesignated as a Mine Countermeasures Support Ship (MCS), will have four ABHs assigned with NEC 7011. Amphibious Transport Docks (LPDs) will have one ABH assigned with NEC 7011. The current total 7011 NEC requirements are 132 shipboard billets, and 78 staff or instructor (shore) billets, which includes instructor billets for shipboard aircraft firefighting at the various Fleet Training Centers (FTCs) worldwide. Table I-1 lists NEC 7011 total requirements by ship. (All manning tables are located at the end of Part I). Table I-2 lists the shore and staff activities requiring NEC 7011. In addition, one officer billet with NOBC 6310 or 7310 should receive this same level of aircraft firefighting training prior to assignment to an aircraft carrier, amphibious ship, or shore firefighting activity. Currently there is no specific formal training for these officers.

Shipboard Crash and Salvage Teams for CV and CVNs will consist of 24 persons, a minimum of five ABHs with NEC 7011 and up to 19 others. Shipboard Crash and Salvage Teams for MCS, LHA, and LHD ships will consist of 19 persons, a minimum of four ABHs with NEC 7011 and up to 15 others. LPD ships require four ABHs, one with NEC 7011. An LPD class ship does not have Crash and Salvage Teams assigned. In the event of an incident, the ABH personnel aboard would lead the firefighting, rescue, and salvage effort. Table I-3 lists key enlisted positions aboard aircraft carriers and amphibious warfare ships requiring NEC 7011.

NEC 7012 is established and the description of duties reads:

Performs duties as a firefighting, rescue, and salvage specialist aboard NAS, facilities, and outlying fields. Conducts or directs rescue, firefighting, and salvage operations. Performs preoperational inspections and operates shore-based aircraft firefighting systems and salvage equipment. Sets up and directs firefighting training including live fire drills.

This shore-based NEC has a total billet requirement of 210, including 78 instructors. There are many activities that will require changes in existing billet titles and NEC requirements. There were only a few activities without adequate numbers of ABH personnel assigned. ABH 7012 billet requirements are listed in Table I-4. This table includes the equipment manned, hours of operation for the airfield or facility, and total personnel requirements. Currently there are no 7012 billets in the fleet despite the course having been RFT since October 1998. This information has been added to Part VI (Decision Items / Action Required) of this NTSP.

USMC manning for MOSs 7051 Fire Protection Apprentice and 7002 Expeditionary Airfield and Emergency Services Officer is currently established by approved Tables of Organization. MOS 7051 training is active, providing qualified replacement personnel for vacated positions due to normal attrition. Prior to assignment to MOS 7002, USMC officer personnel must have attained MOS 7051. After having attained MOS 7051, USMC officers may be designated MOS 7002 with no additional schooling.

4. Training Concept. Training for this program is multi-faceted. It is essential for the Navy and USMC to ensure all aviation personnel deployed on aviation and aviation capable ships have had some aircraft firefighting training. Personnel that are the leaders and supervisors must have additional training to perform their duties. Crash crews that will initially respond to an aircraft fire must have additional team training to ensure mission success. Ashore, there are additional, as well as different, knowledge and skill requirements that must be addressed through specific training. The following provides the Navy and USMC with necessary training to accomplish this critical mission.

a. Initial Training

(1) USMC. USMC instructors were provided initial training in FY95, during establishment of USMC training at the DoD Firefighting Academy, Goodfellow AFB.

(2) USN. All initial training for Navy courses C-822-2010, C-780-2012, and C-780-2013 was completed prior to FY92. The following initial training was provided in FY99:

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. Naval Education and Training (NAVEDTRA) 43426-1 supports shipboard Air Department and firefighting training requirements and has been revised. NAVEDTRA 43517 of August 1992 supports shore-based Air Department and firefighting training. This Personal Qualification Standard package is scheduled for review and should be updated to reflect the DoDINST 6055.6 requirements, as well as other deficient areas, such as inclusion of Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus.

3. Other On Board or In-service Training Packages. The designated Aircraft Firefighting and Salvage Specialist (NEC 7011) will enhance onboard continuation training of ships company and air wing personnel through use of crash drills and other informal On-the-Job Training (OJT) per NATOPS Manual NAVAIR-00-80R-14 and local command instructions. DoD Certified Airport Firefighters (NEC 7012) will enhance onboard continuation training of station personnel through use of crash drills, formal and informal OJT per NATOPS Manual NAVAIR-00-80R-14, and local command instructions.

There are many related courses of instruction available through the Air Force Extension Course Institute. A catalog of courses is available for the DoD Fire Protection Certification Program.

Marine Corps onboard training is based on the current series of MCO P4790.12, Individual Training Standards System and Marine Training Management Evaluation Program (MATMEP). This program is designed to meet all Marine Corps training requirements. It is a performance-based, standardized, level-progressive, documentable, training management and evaluation program. It identifies and prioritizes task inventories by MOS through a front-end analysis process that identifies task, skill, and knowledge requirements of each MOS.
