Are your Driver/Operator's inspecting apparatus correctly?
Do your daily and weekly apparatus checks comply with NFPA Standards for personnel safety?

Crash Course Village now offers a preventive maintenance Emergency Vehicle check course.

Two NFPA Standards address how Emergency Vehicles are to be checked on daily and weekly checks.

NFPA 1002: Standard for Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications:

NFPA 1002 outlines the requirements for preventive maintenance, as it relates to a fire apparatus operator.

NFPA 1911: Standard for the Inspection, Maintenance, Testing, and Retirement of In-Service Fire Apparatus:

NFPA 1911 outlines the requirements for proper inspection of automotive fire apparatus, as it relates to a fire apparatus operator.

In order to be successful and safe on a fireground, on the road, and in the apparatus bays, your fire department needs to maintain apparatus in perfect working condition. But are your Driver/Operator's properly checking apparatus on a daily and weekly basis?

"At the request of the International Association of Fire Chief’s Emergency Vehicle Management Section, Emergency Vehicle Technician Certification Commission (EVT) has developed an exam that is targeted for the operator of the vehicle to do a daily/ weekly check that will satisfy the new requirements of NFPA 1911 Standard for Inspection, Maintenance, Testing, and Retirement of In-Service Emergency Vehicles 2017 edition."
