KEY NFPA STANDARDS FOR cab/chassis REFURBISHMENT
Below, we’ve highlighted a handful of NFPA refurbishing standards that you may want to take into consideration as you plan your fire apparatus refurbishment. Note, while we can update the cab to meet seat belt requirements, a chassis cannot be refurbed for rollover stability, as suggested by the standards below. Only a chassis remount would bring your apparatus up to current standards. Our Cost Analysis page can help you determine the feasability of this kind of upgrade.
