Looking for a skeleton or outline of EAP for racetrack
I am taking a class and must figure out an Emergency Action Plan for a racetrack. I have never been to a racetrack and need some help. My project is the INDY but just an idea. I am taking a homeland security program.

The track Im at uses an older F150 (to small) 4X4 with a 200gal tank with a small pump. We use abc extinguishers, PKP, and water. Im trying to get our track manager to buy some additives to drop in the tanks.
Our track has been closed for 2 yrs due to an asshat running it poorly. In that time all the equipment sat dormant. It took some effort to get the pumps back operating and had to do some work on the extrication tools.
Richmond International Raceway, Richmond, VA
Reading thru this post and everything sounds awesome! I was a volunteer at RIR in Richmond, VA for the Busch/Nextel series races in May and September for several years. Henrico Co Fire and Rescue provided more of the on track support for the raceway in addition to the RIR "Safety Staff" that do a good portion of the extrication. They use Holmatro portable rescue tools. Volunteers, like myself, did the majority of EMS/Suppression for the off track work....fans, parking lots, and camp site.
Maybe there is someone on here that actually works for Henrico County that would be better able to provide info on what they do at RIR! I would be interested in what comes out of the meetings as to whether there will be a "national standard" or a further revising of NFPA 610.
