I would be grateful if someone could "COPY AND PASTE" [ONLY] the ACTUAL NFPA, ANNEX-D section Recommendation that states THE MAXIMUM AGE when apparatus NEEDS to be REPLACED to be [NFPA] compliant.
I do not have a copy of 1901 handy, and can't afford the $25,000 to purchase one...just to settle a discussion on this subject. I have heard many, many professional opinions, but would prefer the something more, if you will...legal as I cannot find EXACTLY what I am looking for.
Thanks very much in advance for the help.

Online versions are "view only" and will not allow cut and paste, unless someone more technically savvy than I knows how to get around it. In the meantime, why don't you check with your local Fire Marshal's Office or Code Enforcement (who usually have the full set of codes on hand) to borrow it or photocopy it for you????"Loyalty Above all Else. Except Honor."

Ya, I have checked the "on-line" version too. I was hoping that someone could simply "scan" the part Re: MAX or recommended AGE...copy and paste that ONLY.
It appears many have "opinions" on this...with each being somewhat different. I hate to ask favors like this, but if I can't find it here, I may ask someone at the NFPA booth at the FRI Expo this week, to see if they could help me out.
Thanks, and I do appreciate your help and suggestions.

It is recommended that apparatus greater than 15 years
old that have been properly maintained and that are still in
serviceable condition be placed in reserve status and upgraded
in accordance with NFPA 1912, Standard for Fire Apparatus
Refurbishing, to incorporate as many features as possible
of the current fire apparatus standard.
Apparatus that were not manufactured to the applicable
NFPA fire apparatus standards or that are over 25 years old
should be replaced.I have only 2 allegiances, to my country and to my God. The rest of you are fair game.

This will ensure that, while the apparatus might not totally comply with the current edition of the automotive fire apparatus standards, many of the improvements and upgrades required by the recent versions of the standards are available to the fire fighters who use the apparatus.
Apparatus that was not manufactured to the applicable NFPA fire apparatus standards or that is over 25 years old should be replaced.I'm the one Fire and Rescue calls, when they need to be Rescued.
