  1. Water Rescue Plan Honolulu Airports District Office

  2. FAR 139.325(b), Airport Emergency Plan Each Certificate Holder must develop and maintain an Airport Emergency Plan designed to minimize the possibility and extent of personal injury and property damage. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  3. The plans required by this section must contain instructions for a response to a Water Rescue situation. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  4. FAA Advisory Circular 150/5210-13C, provides the Certificate Holder with standards, practices, and Recommendations to comply with Water Rescue situations as appropriate and acceptable to the Administrator. FAR Part 139 certificated airports and airports that have received federal grant-in-aid assistance must use these standards. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  5. AC 150/5210-13C This AC incorporates lessons learned as a result of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigations. It also contains updated sources of information about water rescue from the United States Coast Guard (USCG). Because of jurisdictional or logistical reasons, an airport operator may need to develop a water rescue plan that consists of a written mutual aid agreement identifying an entity to act as the Primary Response Agency. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  6. Such agreements are typically coordinated by the local Civil Defense, Emergency Management office, Harbor Rescue/Patrol, etc. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  7. A water rescue plan may also contain additional signed agreements with private entities such as; Tug operators, Ferries, Marina Facilities, Helicopter Services, Heavy Equipment Companies, Boating and Dive Club Organizations. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  8. Even when the airport operator Is Not the primary response agency, It has the responsibility for implementing the airport emergency plan in accordance with FAR Part 139.325 and insuring that appropriate rescue agency/agencies are formally notified of the possibility of an aircraft accident/incident where there is a significant body of water. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  9. What Is a significant Body of Water A body of water or marshland is significant if the area exceeds one-quarter square mile and cannot be traversed by conventional land rescue vehicles. Some airports have large detention ponds on airport property. In many cases, these ponds are in proximity to the runway and of sufficient size and depth to create a significant hazard to an aircraft which may enter the pond. The emergency plan should include all significant bodies of water and marshlands located within at least 2 miles of the end of an airport runway which cannot be traversed by conventional and rescue vehicles, including detention ponds. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  10. Rescue operations between rescue personnel on the water and on land must be coordinated to ensure that survivors are brought to a designated area on shore for triage, decontamination, and surface transportation. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  11. Accountability and tracking of rescue personnel and survivors is an essential component of the water rescue plan coordination. Rescue personnel should be monitored through a NIMS compliant accountability system, utilizing accountability tags or another method that is harmonized with all response agencies. A system to maintain accountability of survivors should also be established and adopted for use by all agencies involved. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  12. Airport Certificate Holder’s must be mindful of maintaining its ARFF index for continued air carrier operations at the airport to support the water rescue efforts, allowing for medical evacuation, air transport of equipment, Recovery/Go Team operations and other potential needs as may be necessary. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  13. Command and Control during the Rescue Operation. If other agencies, particularly the Coast Guard or local Harbor Patrol, perform rescue operations, the airport operator will need to establish communications on a marine radio frequency with the primary response agency. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  14. Water Rescue plans are currently being updated at some of our Pacific Island airports, with the remaining airports already having had plans in place requiring annual review of MOA/MOU’s, exhibits and any diagrams or maps. All plan updates must be forwarded to the FAA for approval prior to its implementation. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  15. The Water Rescue plan must include at least the following: • Description of nearby bodies of water • List name, address, and telephone numbers of each water rescue response organization • Notification of jurisdictional authority(s) (IC), based on location of incident • Availability and method of deploying floatation devices. • Hazardous materials, pollution containment. • Personnel recall • Security, Traffic and access control • Emergency Medical Services (EMS) • Airline Responsibilities/Family assistance Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

  16. The Water Rescue plan must include at least the following: 10. Procedures protocol for deceased 11 . Mutual aid agreements between airport, each response agency, private companies i.e. boat fleets /ferries/water shuttles/dive clubs 12. Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) role 13. Specific fuel decontamination 14. Locations for mobilizing personnel, equipment, staging areas 15. Rescue boat facilities & locations. Limitations weather, tide, access roads. 16. Establish specific docking/landing areas onshore. Considerations for this location, flexible float heights, ambulance staging, and road access Wildlife Hazard Management Plan
