Section II. EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT
The equipment covered in this section includes
all emergency equipment, except that which forms part
of a complete system. For example, landing gear
system, etc. Chapter 9 describes the operation of
2-13. FIRST AID KITS.
Three first aid kits are included in the survival kit.
2-14. HAND-OPERATED FIRE EXTINGUISHER.
Repeated or prolonged exposure to
or decomposition products should be
avoided. The liquid shall not be
allowed to come into contact with the
skin, as it may cause frost bite or low
temperature burns because of its
very low boiling point.
One hand-operated fire extinguisher is mounted
below the pilot's seat and a second extinguisher is
located in the left cabin sidewall, aft of the cabin door.
They are of the monobromotrifluoromethane (CF3Br)
type. Each extinguisher is charged to a pressure of 150
to 170 PSI and emits a forceful stream. Use an
extinguisher with care within the limited area of the cabin
to avoid severe splashing.
Engine fire extinguisher systems are
described in Section III.
2-15. SURVIVAL RAFTS AND KITS.
Tie-down provisions for three survival rafts and
kits are provided just aft of the toilet on the right side of
the aft cabin area.
