Airport Inspection Guidelines

Introduction

The UC Davis Fire Department endeavors to increase the level of awareness regarding fire and life safety issues at all facilities. By increasing the level of awareness we make the campus and surrounding facilities a safer environment for all to enjoy.

As part of the process, the UC Davis Fire Department has created a Fire and Life Safety Program-Airport Inspection Checklist to assist airport hangar occupants in making their respective hangars and area around their hangars safe.

Purpose

The purpose of the checklist to provide the hangar occupant with an overview of common safety violations identified during annual Fire Department airport hangar inspections. Occupant use of the checklist significantly increases the level of awareness of fire and life safety issues, and can reinforce good fire and life safety habits. This will substantially minimize the probability and severity of an unplanned event. Basic fire and life safety concerns are the first step in preventing accidents and emergencies.

Using the Checklist

The airport hangar occupant’s basic inspection consists of identifying and correcting obvious impediments. Items such as electrical, combustible storage, housekeeping, and flammable liquids storage are common areas where the hangar occupant can significantly improve the overall safety of their hangar.

In the event that a safety item cannot be easily corrected or assistance from other facilities is necessary, a written proposal can be submitted to the Fire Department outlining the plan for corrections. This proposal may contain information as to what facilities have been contacted for assistance to correct the problem. An example would be if an electrical outlet were needed for an appliance in lieu of an extension cord, the plan of correction would be to contact Operations and Maintenance Electrical for installation of an outlet.

Fire Department Collaboration
