Bill introduced Scott Detweiler of Ferrara Fire Apparatus. He spoke with a very detailed power point. He informed the members about the changes in NFPA 1901 and the requirements of 1911 including 2012 standards and 2016 standards. He discussed the new requirements for aerial apparatus and the requirements for tires (the numbers on a tire such as 4215 means the 42nd week of 2015 ) Braking tests must be performed with the apparatus fully loaded. If a seat belt is damaged, the apparatus must be out of service until it is repaired. Scott suggested members who want to see a boiler plate form should refer to section C of 1911.
The attendees enjoyed a birthday cake for Barbara Connelly from Waterway pump testing. There was only one raffle donation – the members and Will of FRC made Barbara the winner for her birthday. The president presented framed certificates to Scott Detweiler, Ed Sutch for Ferrara and the Board of Fire Commissioners of Wantagh.
