This program is designed to educate fire departments about the aspects of aerial device maintenance and inspections, and to build awareness of the Fire Equipment Safety(FES) services provided by UL. The program provides an overview of the inspection and testing requirements found in Chapter 22 of the NFPA 1911 Standard for the Inspection, Maintenance, Testing, and Retirement of In-Service Emergency Vehicles. The course is comprised of four individual modules that cover: visual inspection of aerial components and structural members, critical bolt inspection and torqueing, aerial hydraulic systems, and operational tests and load tests. Each module also addresses requirements such as testing methods, testing frequency, tools required to conduct tests, safety considerations, and inspection personnel qualifications.
Course content will remain available as a reference for 1 year from the date of purchase, and may be accessed at any time during those 12 months.
