Virtual Airport Commission Meeting October 7

Hello Commission members!

This year annual meeting for the CTIF Commission for Fire & Rescue at Airports will be held virtually, on the 7th of October 2020. The Commission Chair will send the program later, however due  to being restricted to the internet, the meeting will be shorter than normal.

Here comes also latest news from EASA (thanks Karl-Christian). Main things of the decision are for the purposes of training rescue and firefighting personnel on pressure-fed fuel fires, and medical / physical fitness condition of the rescue and firefighting personnel at airports.
