made by connecting a conductive cable from the piece of equipment to a
conductive metal rod that is driven into the earth to reach the level of
permanent moisture. Common sources of static electricity are identified
Air Traffic Control.
Air traffic control (ATC) is required for safe
trained person is required at each refueling point that serves more than
one aircraft. This person controls and directs refueling traffic and
resupply aircraft. He provides flight personnel with information such as
wind direction and velocity, remaining fuel supply, enemy activity in the
immediate area, hazards or obstructions to landing, and emergency
provided for controlling air traffic. At a large semipermanent or
temporary refueling point a radio control tower should be used whenever
aircraft are being refueled. In forward areas, personnel controlling air
traffic should have FM radio suitable for ground-to-air or ground-to-
ground communication. Aircraft marshaling signals and landing aids are
necessary at semi-permanent and forward refueling points. In marking
landing and refueling areas in the field, procedural principles should
be followed closely especially in forward tactical areas.
PART G - ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS
potential for spills and fires. If you take simple precautions you will
prevent large pollution problems. During refueling you can protect the
environment by doing the following:
Compliance. Follow your unit SOP concerning the types and quantities
of items you can store at a fuel point.
Prevention. Reduce the amount of soil contaminated during refueling
by being careful not to spill fuel. Reuse rags and absorbent
materials. Recycle used or contaminated petroleum, oil, and lubricant
Conservation. Dispose of contaminated soil and absorbents according
to the installation's policy and the unit's SOP.
