The following was sent to be shared with you from the NFPA…so check it out:
There is a lot of interest in the design criteria of attack fire hose and research is underway to look at the current design and testing criteria. When the results are available, NFPA® will provide them to the Technical Committee on Fire Hose, which develops NFPA 1961, Standard on Fire Hose. NFPA will also facilitate any revisions to the Standard that the Technical Committee feels necessary . Our process allows for this to happen at any time, regardless if the Standard is in its revision period or not.
Fire service members play a vital role in the development of our Standards. There are two ways you can be part of the discussion on attack fire hose. NFPA 1961 is open for Public Inputs until July of 2015 and this is an opportunity for you and the members of your Department to share your needs and thoughts about fire hose with the Technical Committee. Visit next edition accepting Public Inputs at www.nfpa.org/1961 .
The Committee on Fire Hose is seeking members in the interest classifications of Installer/Maintainer, Applied Research/Testing Laboratory, Insurance, Consumer, Enforcer, Labor, Special Expert and User. Your voice and that of your Department is needed and welcomed. To learn more visit submit Fire Hose TC Application on line. Enforcer members are eligible for 80% reimbursement of their travel expenses. More information available at Enforcer Funding Program.
