For what it's worth and if wrong will stand corrected. My understanding is that in the event of a full scale emergency being declared the 'domestic' services are immediately called for support. Upon their arrival the domestic fire chief will assume command of the incident, and the airfield fire services take instruction from him/her. The field will close if the required fire cover is not available to traffic, or obviously if the incident is of such a scale that the airport requires closing.
