Are you up to speed? NFPA 1901 Annex D and new 1911 with Annex D addresses the problem of older vehicles that do not incorporate features and safety standards. Read more about NFPA 1901 Annex D and new 1911 Annex D. Annex D is designed to help departments determine if an apparatus is in need of upgrading or refurbishing. By upgrading to equipment that meets the newer NFPA 1901 standard, you can significantly reduce the potential of serious injury or death resulting from injuries sustained in accidents or operation of these vehicles. The annex recommends replacement of any vehicles that were built prior to 1979. It further recommends refurbishment or replacement of any vehicles built between 1979 and 1991. If units are refurbished and retained, they should be placed in reserve status.
About 40,000 (more than 50%) of fire apparatus in service in fire departments across the United States today were built prior to the 1991 edition of NFPA 1901, Standard for Automotive Fire Apparatus, which incorporated a number of significant safety features for fire trucks. Of those 40,000 fire apparatus, 10,000 units are more than 30 years old, 17,000 are from 20 to 29 years old and 13,000 units are 15 to 19 years old, according to the National Fire Protection Association.
