    Default Apparatus/Vehicle Question

    I am currently taking a Methods of Instruction course to acquire my Fire Instrutor I certification. In the class, we have to make some presentations and I need a little help with mine.

    I am going to do a PowerPoint presentation on differet types pf apparatus and vehicles used in emergency services. I a showing and talking about pumpers, aerials, rescues, ems vehicles, and as many different types of specialty apparatus and vehicles as possible.

    What I need is find a place where I can find some accurate info on engines and what requirements must be made for it to be considered a structural attack engine, same thing for the different types of apparatus. Would NFPA have this??

    Thanks

    NFPA has the information you need. I believe the web address is www.nfpa.org some of the info you may have to pay for....better resouces might be in your station or fire marshalls office

    I don't know if it'll help much or not, but another place to look might be on the manufacturers websites:

    E-One

    American LaFrance

    Seagrave

    Pierce

    If nothing else, you can get some pictures and specs there...

    NFPA 1901 has the requirements for the different types of vehicles.

    A free source for the 1901 light requirements can be found at www.whelen.com

    As for the NFPA standard find a department who subscribes to the standards, if not your fire department try your building department. If you are a subscriber you get all of the standards.
