    Default NFPA Standard #

    I am working on this years grant and we are asking for 2 AED's to come into compliance with NFPA standard for having an AED on every engine. I remember reading this in one of the standards but I cannot remember which one it was, anyone know which standard covers equipment required on apparatus?

    Also, if i remember correctly if you are a medical first responder agency and the pt was transported via ALS ambulance then you count it as an ALS call, correct?

    Lastly, in the request section where it asks about if your request puts you in compliance with federal guidelines or NFPA etc. We are asking for a cascade and fill station, i don't know of any guidelines that require this so I just pu that it doesn't meet any.

    NFPA 1901 addresses the AED's as equipment for apparatus.

    It will count as ALS if the ALS ambulance performs ALS procedures otherwise it would be BLS. If you use a private ambulance ask them for the breakdown between the two.

    NFPA 1901 addresses cascade systems.
    NFPA 1852 in a nut shell states SCBA cylinders will be filled as soon as possible after use.

    Ok, is there a NFPA standard for extrication equipment? I'm sure there is but don't know it off the top of my head and did a search on NFPA site and extrication didn't come up and neither did vehicle. Thanks

    NFPA 1936: Standard on Powered Rescue Tools.

    I think that's the one you're looking for.

    Thanks Catch, that is exactly what I was looking for. I knew there was a standard but I obviously wasn't searching the right words. Thanks again

    No problem. Gotta love NFPA, they have to use that engineer jargon to identify anything. The only reason I found it is because I remember the Amkus website referenced an NFPA standard on their tools.
