You and I agree that most departments are forced to comply with NFPA 1901 due to the manufacturer realizing that the liability will fall upon them, but other standards are out there looking for voluntary compliance. Actually, though, while the apparatus is delivered compliant with NFPA 1901, it's up to the department to maintain it that way. For instance, one could remove the hose bed nets.
I could probably come up with a number of cases where a non-mandetory standard is used to show an industry standard, but none of them would have anything to do with an apparatus accident, so I'm not sure it's worth the effort. I will say that NFPA 921, which is titled "Guide for Fire & Explosion Investigations", which by it's own title is a guide, has been used to discredit shoddy fire investigations. (also been used to try to discredit good fire investigations, but that's a topic for a different forum).

10 Days Later. I know it's not a pre connect but my guess would be there was nothing to stop it
Good reasons to have nets or tarps or someething to stop that hose from coming off the truck.
