Thread: NFPA Standards

Does anyone have a step by step checklist of exactly what is needed in a physical to comply with NFPA 1002 and NFPA 1582 for driver/operators?
Something I can hand to our medical providers and say "This is what I want done".
NFPA does not have it clearly spelled out (that I find)

The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

I received my driver/operator certification not too long ago, and never heard anything about a physical. I would assume it would just be a fairly clean bill of health, no risk of seizures or red-flagged heart issues... maybe similar to the physical required for a CDL?TruckCommittee.com

Is there an age limit as well??? If not, then there should be. Seriously, I'd rather have a smoking 30 yr old driving my rig, than a 45 yr old that doesn't smoke. Hopefully less chances of him having a coronary when the tones go off.
Do the lawyers know this, and can they use it as a means to say that the FD is liable for any unseen accident, because he smokes???
Thanks, I guess for the info. I'll have to check it out more in depth.
