    Default NFPA and a QRS/Light Rescue

    We run a light rescue / QRS unit. Our current model is past it's prime and is rusting out. We are looking at replacing and wanted to know what the pertinent NFPA requirements are. Unfortunately, in the index, NFPA does not list QRS or light rescue apparatus. Any ideas of what we would have to meet?

    Nothing. NFPA standards are exactly that- standards; not requirements.

    Do you know if there are any NFPA "standards" specifically regarding a light rescue or QRS unit?

    Look at the 1901 standard for motorized apparatus.... if they have one it probably is covered there or it refers you to the correct standard.

    http://www.nfpa.org/catalog/TOC/1901-09-toc.html this is the table of contents url. It has specialized apparatus and standards for power and winches etc that may be included in your vehicle.
