The article reports on the new revision of Automotive Fire Apparatus 1901 proposed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in the U.S. The new revision has required apparatus manufacturers to state in operator's manuals that fire helmets are not allowed to wear in the cabs and crew areas. The analyst believes that the change creates potential storage issues that could hinder deployment flow and increase associated costs.
