[In developing procedures for Fire/Smoke on the Ground it is probably most useful to develop a procedure that leads to the Evacuation Drill. That is, only those actions should be specified that are not included in the Evacuation Drill, but apply specifically to smoke or a fire that occurs during ground operations. An example follows.]
Should smoke or a fire develop during ground operations (such as taxi or engine start), the Fire/Smoke on the Ground drill is to be completed. The drill leads to the Evacuation Drill, which is used to secure the Aeroplane for evacuation.
