Abstract : This is a report of an occupational survey of the Fire Protection career ladder completed by the Air Force Occupational Measurement Squadron. This survey was completed as part of the 5-year cycle of career field analyses, as well as to collect current data for use in evaluating the impact of changes due to the recent restructuring of training in the Air Force and to evaluate implementation of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) certification standards. On 31 October 1993, this AFSC was directly converted to the current code number, 3E7X1, to conform to the new enlisted specialty coding nomenclature. The last survey report pertaining to this career ladder was published in April 1988. Background: As described in AFMAN 36-2108 Specialty Descriptions, dated April 1991, personnel in this career ladder are responsible for preventing the loss of life and property from fire by: fighting aerospace vehicle fires and structural fires; supporting electrical power productions in resetting aircraft arresting systems, when not in conflict with firefighting operations; fighting wildland and miscellaneous fires; performing rescue operations; performing command and control functions during emergencies; protecting and preserving evidence at the scene of an emergency; performing fire alarm communications center (FACC) duties; performing inspections and operator maintenance on crash fire rescue vehicles, tools, equipment, and protective covering; performing fire prevention and inspection duties; and performing crew duties on hazardous materials incident response teams.
