Wouldn't you design it like any other concrete floor slab with wheel loads such as PCA Concrete Floors on Ground or any of the other standard methods?  For a freebee you might look at TM 5-809-12 Concrete Floor Slabs on Grade Subjected to Heavy Loads.

Design of Pavement Section

Don’t ask me why, but I need to design a driveway (on grade) for a fire truck. I believe the owner wants to use AC, but if he must go with PCC, then he will.
Are there any good guidelines, references, methods used to design a section for this purpose? I sure would hate to waste a bunch of time if this is something that is pretty simple.
I’m supposed to be receiving wheel loads later today.
