Asiana 214 Accident @ SFO - NTSB Abstract, Survival Factors, Accident Report, Recommendations and Presentation to the NFPA
The Coalition Letter in Opposition to ARFF Standards identifies some of the people and organizations you can thank for influencing the last congressional vote defeating the adoption of the national consensus ARFF standard (NFPA 403) at America's airports . Congress accepted the subjective misinformation skewed in the ACRP 7 & ACRP 12 reports (see below - Important ARFF Documents) referenced in the coalition letter, as empirical evidence. See my arguments to the misinformation presented to the U.S. Senate in in my presentation to the NFPA ARFF Technical Committee.
IF YOU WANT TO SAVE LIVES BY AMENDING FAR PART 139 FOR ARFF RESPONSE, INTERIOR ATTACK & STAFFING, GET INVOLVED! EMAIL/WRITE YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES. HAVE THEM SEE THE ASIANA 214 ARFF FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS (Above).
