The NFPA standard on ground ladder testing was recently updated with an effective date of July 29, 2014.


The current edition of NFPA 1932, Standard on Use, Maintenance, and Service Testing of In-Service Fire Department Ground Ladders, is the 2015 edition.  The 2015 edition brings clarification and improvement to the visual inspection checklist and adds an operational test for extension ladders to ensure there is no damage to the ladder.

 

Ground ladder testing includes:

 

· Factory trained technicians.

· Removal of ladders from apparatus to testing area.

· Cleaning of all ladders.

· Inspecting in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and NFPA 1932.

· Testing in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and NFPA 1932.

· Installation of new heat sensor and safety labels on all ladders that pass and need labels.

· Repairs (if needed).

· Completion and delivery of computerized reports.

 

** Did you know that replacing the 3/8 inch halyard with 1/2 inch halyard makes it
    easier to handle the halyard with a gloved hand?
