P-19R provides rescue and firefighting capabilities to permanent and expeditionary airfields throughout the Marine Corps. The P-19R provides the MAGTF the capability to defend itself against aircraft fires caused by crashes or other causes. The P-19R may also be employed to fight structure fires in support of base camps and as firefighting support to other elements of the MAGTF such as ammunition supply points, Petroleum, Oil, and Lubricants (POL) distribution points, or hazardous material storage facilities. P19R has an organic sustainment strategy throughout its lifecycle. It will be maintained and upgraded in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 414, Standard for Aircraft Rescue and Fire- Fighting Vehicles.
