Each CF base must have some form of fire services. These services vary from a civilian Fire Department as is the case for CFB Kingston and RMC, or a fully developed Fire Department providing, as well as other responsibilities, response to an airfield with specialized equipment full time personnel, such as 8 Wing Trenton. This research project aims at providing a simulation model to enable senior personnel to examine what if scenarios for varying levels of equipment and resources. The outputs include estimates of property damage, inquiries, and lives lost. Simulations (written in SIMUL8) that have been developed, model each of the disparate situations. By the end of this year some eight bases will have been modelled in this way.
