Safety Zones

The five safety zones are based upon the existing airfield configuration, the methodology utilized is provided in Chapter 1 of the ONT ALUCP. The ONT ALUCP Safety Zones are located solely within Ontario’s city limits. The intent of the Safety Zones and associated policies is to minimize the risks associated with an off-airport aircraft accident or emergency landing. The policies focus on the following objectives:

  • Protect people and property on the ground;
  • Minimize injury to aircraft occupants; and
  • Prevent the creation of hazards to flight.

Safety Zone policies establish the maximum number of people per acre allowed within each safety zone. The policies are implemented by limiting and prohibiting certain land uses, limiting a buildings floor are ratio (FAR) and limiting the storage of hazardous material.
