    Default NFPA Standard?

    Does anyone know if NFPA has adopted a standard regarding reflective chevrons on the rear of apparatus? I've heard talk of it but I'm not sure if it is a standard now.

    NFPA 1901
    section At least 50 percent of the rear-facing vertical surfaces, visible from the rear of the apparatus, excluding any pump panel areas not covered by a door, shall be equipped with retroreflective striping in a chevron pattern sloping downward and away from the centerline of the vehicle at an angle of 45 degrees.
