What are the Safety Zones?
These areas are the locations, other than the runway, where aircraft accidents are most likely to occur and where activities on the ground, such as the creation of smoke, dust or electromagnetic emissions can threaten the safety of flight operations. The Safety Zones include a 3,000 foot area beyond the base runways at either end of the base and has the highest accident potential is the Clear Zone, the next 5,000 feet beyond the Clear zone is Accident Potential Zone 1, and 7,000 feet beyond APZ 1 is Accident Potential Zone 2.
