    Post Portable Fill Stations

    Anyone aware of requirements for having a fill station on fireground to fill scba bottles? I heard PA is in the process of passing such legislation?

    I know the new NFPA is requiring an certified fill station for all new systems on trucks contracted after 1-1-2000 This requires a unit of that design to be by a third party. The test ruptures a bottle and does not allow any pieces to come fom the station. The bottles near the ruptured bottle may not have any damage after failure and the standard requires all exhaust be directed away from the operator.
