Improve fire apparatus performance and reliability with the expanded NFPA 1911.
Correct, timely inspection, maintenance, and in-service testing of fire apparatus will ensure that the apparatus can deliver on cue. Trust the 2007 NFPA 1911: Inspection, Maintenance, Testing, and Retirement of In-Service Automotive Fire Apparatus when developing a program for the care of your fire department apparatus. The newly expanded Standard incorporates requirements from three widely used documents into one stand-alone source!
In a major improvement for users, NFPA 1911 now includes all the provisions formerly located in:
- NFPA 1911: Standard for Service Tests of Fire Pump Systems on Fire Apparatus -- site, environmental, and equipment rules for pump system performance testing, as well as testing frequency and procedures.
- NFPA 1914: Standard for Testing Fire Department Aerial Devices -- requirements and procedures for testing the aerial device on an apparatus, including aerial ladders, elevating platforms, and water towers.
- NFPA 1915: Standard for Fire Apparatus Preventive Maintenance Program -- provisions for testing, servicing, and maintenance of fire apparatus systems and items.
In this expanded edition of NFPA 1911, information is organized into 23 chapters, with updated text consistent with the latest proven techniques, equipment, and technologies. Changes reflect new research and industry needs. For example:
- Expanded rules incorporate periodic weighing of the apparatus and testing of chassis components such as braking systems and low voltage electrical systems.
- Added testing applies to components such as foam proportioning systems, compressed air foam systems (CAFS), line voltage electrical systems, and compressed breathing air systems.
- Revised out-of-service criteria redefine the conditions under which fire apparatus must be taken out of service or evaluated by a technician. Added material also addresses retirement of fire apparatus.
- A new Annex includes must-have forms for recording inspections and test results.
Essential for mechanics, maintenance shop supervisors, and testing company personnel.
Access provisions in a single source! The 2007 NFPA 1911 is vital for anyone responsible for inspecting, servicing, or testing fire apparatus. (Softbound, 107 pp., 2007)
