    Default Brush Truck NFPA Standard

    We are in the process of building a new brush truck. It will be on a 2500HD Chevy Chassis with a flat bed and skid unit. We are thinking about putting an area behind the cab in the front corners of the skid unit for a place to stand. We are going to cut out an area in the corner of the skid unit and build an enclosed platform down lower to ground with a mansaver bar across the entry area. My question is does the new NFPA Standards allow this do be done??? I though I had read that the new Standard does not allow a firefighter to ride outside the cab. However I still see that Fire Truck MFG. building units with a place for a firefighter to ride, usually behind the cab.

    You'll have to look at NFPA 1500 for Personnel Safety. In the 1906 15.7, it talks about safety stepping and flooring, and what nots. If you can, have a look at those two.

    EDIT: NFPA 1500 A.6.3.1 Is what you need to read, pg 36. It says, that no FF will ride while working a wildland fire. (to paraphrase)

    The "A" in the cite means the information is in the Annex and is not part of the primary recommendations.
