Revised for 2002, NFPA 1451 specifies the minimum requirements for a fire service vehicle operations training program (except for aircraft and watercraft), including safety procedures for those members who drive or occupy fire service vehicles.
This expanded edition places emphasis on safety considerations in all areas, and includes:
Coverage of private industrial and contract fire departments
Coverage of industrial fire brigades that respond off-site
Replacement of the term accident with the term crash, to remove any connotation that the common causes of a crash are typically unforeseen or unexpected
This Standard also guides the development of a written training program including the organizational procedures for training, vehicle maintenance, and identifying equipment deficiencies. (Softbound, 20 pp., 2002)
