 FIRE TANKER APPARATUS SAFETY OPERATIONS

While technology has brought a great amount of change to the fire service in recent years, one thing has not changed. The trucks still cannot extinguish fires by themselves. Safe Operation of Fire Tankers is a new manual that provides comprehensive information regarding the safety practices and principles of fire tanker vehicles for local-level fire departments. Safe Operation of fire Tankers provides information related to human performance (driver training, operations, etc), technology (vehicle design), to enhance the safety of fire tanker operations. The manual also examines past incidents of crashes involving fire tankers that have killed firefighters with a focus on how these fatalities could have been prevented. Fire departments will find Safe Operation of Fire Tankers a valuable resource providing information related to the current and applicable Federal standards and regulations as well as national-level consensus standards and guidelines.
"Vehicle crashes are the second leading cause of all firefighter on duty fatalities," according to U.S. Fire Administrator R. David Paulison. "The USFA is dedicated to providing this

information to the fire service in support of our desired goal to eliminate firefighter deaths and injuries from fire tanker vehicle crashes."

As part of this project effort, a panel of technical experts in the area of fire service emergency vehicle operations, emergency vehicle maintenance, fire tanker design, and tanker water shuttle operations provided detailed recommendations on how to enhance the safety of fire tanker operations that were incorporated into the manual.
