The article discusses the standards set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) pertaining to apparatus to be used for skid mounts. The NFPA 1901 focuses on the apparatus to be primarily used for structural fire suppression and other non-wildfire duties. Meanwhile, NFPA 1906 is centered on the apparatus to be primarily used for wildlife fire suppression. Of the two standards, NFPA 1901 has allegedly higher minimum requirements for pump ratings, tank size and miscellaneous equipment.
