    Default How old is old?

    According to the guidance, "A higher competitive rating is given to departments that have an aged fleet of firefighting vehicles." Does anyone have any idea what constitutes "aged"?

    We have 15 and 33 year old pumpers. Does that meet the definition of aged?

    The 33 does. They follow Annex D of NFPA 1901, which said 30 years. Depending on mileage younger trucks can qualify.
