This paper compares and contrasts three separate aviation crashes and the effectiveness of the emergency response teams and Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) crews that responded on the scenes of the crashes. According to this research, all three, American Airlines Flight 1420, a Canadair Challenger test flight and Korean Air Flight 801, had serious problems with the emergency response, resulting in property damage, injury and loss of life.

From the Paper:

"Many people in today's world are afraid to fly, fearing death from terrorist strikes, hijackers, and mechanical malfunction. While statistics indicate that some of these are rational fears, the chances of death from a commercial airline flight are as high as 52.6 million to 1, according to the NTSB and US DOT (Kebabjian, 2005). Boeing reports only .88 accidents per million departures between 1959 and 2004 (Boeing, 2005, p. 14). Despite this reassuring statistic, there are still a number of highly publicized aircraft accidents each year, some more dramatic than others, but all frightening in one way or another. Not all the accidents result in fatalities, although these tend to get the most attention, especially when public figures are involved."
