P-19 ARFF

The P-19 Truck, Airport Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) is designed to be the first response vehicle on the scene of an aircraft fire emergency to rapidly extinguish aircraft fires.

This truck is a mandatory flight line operations safety requirement and is essential at bases that have a flying mission. The P-19 also provides fire-fighting capability for Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve installations located at municipal airports. An installation’s P-19 requirement is determined by the type of aircraft frequenting the aerial facility and the resulting gallons per minute of fire fighting agent required.

This vehicle provides aircrew, passenger, weapons, and airframe fire protection at a crash site. The P-19 is air transportable by C-130 or larger aircraft.
