Apparatus Safety

The important task of specifying the requirements for a fire apparatus requires in-depth knowledge of both the mechanical and functional aspects of the apparatus and the needs and necessities of the community in which that apparatus will function. Bill Peters provides an overview of those primary considerations when specifying an apparatus. Chris Daly provides an overview of the role that leadership and supervision play in the safe and effective operation of fire apparatus. The effective positioning of apparatus is influenced by many factors on the fireground and within the organization; Mark Rossi reviews those considerations.
