    i'm looking for a document which describes the critera that a piece of apparatus must posess to fall into it's class.

    example: Tanker: must have a minimum tank capacity of XXXX gal.

    does NFPA have such a guide?

    thanks,
    Justin

    I would start with NFPA 1901.

    Look on their web site.

    Ha! Good luck with NFPA if your not a subscribing member.
    I often joke that NFPA stands for "NO FREE PUBLICATIONS ANYTIME"
    But never the less they are the people to go to for this kinda stuff.

    With the advent of NIMS, apparatus titles have changed. Tankers now mean aircraft, and tenders mean apparatus. There was talk of changing this to just west of the rockies, but I do not know.

    It's been changed over here(new jersey) also, everytime someone says"Tanker" on radio, someone corrects them, gets quite annoying at times
