EASA Safety Information Bulletin 2017-08

EASA has published SIB 2017-08 (Access for Rescue and Fire Fighting Services at Aerodromes) in response to a number of incidents where rescue and fire-fighting services (RFFS) access has been impeded. The intent of this SIB is to raise awareness of aerodrome operators about the need to provide convenient access for RFFS vehicles to areas both within the aerodrome perimeter but also, where a fence is provided, outside the aerodrome perimeter. A number of recommendations are made within the SIB.
