TESTING
ROAD TEST
Road test shall be conducted in accordance with this section to verify that the completed apparatus is capable of
compliance with Roadability Section.
The tests shall be conducted at a location and in a manner that does not violate local, state or provincial, or federal traffic
laws.
The tests shall be conducted on dry, level, paved roads that are in good condition. The apparatus shall be loaded to its
estimated in service weight.
The engine shall not operate in excess of the maximum governed speed. Acceleration tests shall consist of two runs in
opposite directions over the same route. The fire apparatus shall attain a speed of 35 mph (55 km/hr) from a standing
start within 25 seconds. The fire apparatus shall attain a minimum top speed of 50 mph (80 km/hr).
If the apparatus is equipped with an auxiliary braking system, the manufacturer shall road test the system to confirm that
the system is functioning as intended by the auxiliary braking system manufacturer.
If the apparatus is equipped with an air brake system, the service brakes shall bring the apparatus, when loaded to it's
GVWR, to a complete stop from an initial speed of 20 mph (32.2 km/hr) in a distance not exceeding 35 ft (10.7 m) by
actual measurement on a paved, level, dry surface road that is free of loose material, oil, or grease.
If the apparatus is equipped with a hydraulic brake system, the service brakes shall bring the apparatus, when loaded to
its GVWR, to a complete stop from an initial speed of 30 mph (48.2 km/hr) in a distance not exceeding 88 ft (26.8 m) by
actual measurement on a paved, level, dry surface road that is free of loose material, oil, or grease.
LOW VOLTAGE - ELECTRICAL SYSTEM PERFORMANCE TEST
The vehicles low voltage electrical system shall be tested and certified by the manufacturer. The certified test results shall
be delivered with the completed vehicle. Tests shall be performed when the air temperature is between 0°F and 110°F (–
18°C and 43°C).
TEST SEQUENCE
The following three (3) tests shall be performed in the order in which they appear below. Before each test, the batteries
shall be fully charged until the voltage stabilizes at the voltage regulator set point and the lowest charge current is
maintained for 10 minutes. Failure of any of these tests shall require a repeat of the sequence.
1. RESERVE CAPACITY TEST
The engine shall be started and kept running until the engine and engine compartment temperatures are stabilized at
normal operating temperatures and the battery system is fully charged. The engine shall be shut off, and the minimum
continuous electrical load shall be activated for 10 minutes.
All electrical loads shall be turned off prior to attempting to restart the engine. The battery system shall then be capable of
restarting the engine. Failure to restart the engine shall be considered a test failure of the battery system.

2. ALTERNATOR PERFORMANCE TEST
TEST AT IDLE
The minimum continuous electrical load shall be activated with the engine running at idle speed. The engine temperature
shall be stabilized at normal operating temperature. The battery system shall be tested to detect the presence of battery
discharge current. The detection of battery discharge current shall be considered a test failure.
TEST AT FULL LOAD
The total continuous electrical load shall be activated with the engine running up to the engine manufacturer’s governed
speed. The test duration shall be a minimum of 2 hours. Activation of the load management system shall be permitted
during this test.
An alarm sounded by excessive battery discharge, as detected by the warning system required in 13.3.4, or a system
voltage of less than 11.8 V dc for a 12 V nominal system, 23.6 V dc for a 24 V nominal system, or 35.4 V dc for a 42 V
nominal system for more than 120 seconds shall be considered a test failure.
3. LOW VOLTAGE ALARM TEST
The following test shall be started with the engine off and the battery voltage at or above 12 V for a 12 V nominal system,
24 V for a 24 V nominal system, or 36 V for a 42 V nominal system.
With the engine shut off, the total continuous electrical load shall be activated and shall continue to be applied
until the excessive battery discharge alarm activates. The battery voltage shall be measured at the battery terminals.
The test shall be considered a failure if the alarm does not sound in less than 140 seconds after the voltage drops to
11.70 V for a 12 V nominal system, 23.4 V dc for a 24 V nominal system, or 35.1 V for a 42 V nominal system.
The battery system shall then be able to restart the engine. Failure to restart the engine shall be considered a test failure.
LOW VOLTAGE - ELECTRICAL SYSTEM PERFORMANCE TEST
DOCUMENTATION
The manufacturer shall deliver the following with the fire apparatus:

BODY DESIGN
The importance of public safety associated with emergency vehicles requires that the construction of this vehicle meet the
following specifications. These specifications are written to establish the minimum level of quality and design. All Bidders
shall be required to meet these minimum requirements.
It is the intent of these specifications to fully describe the requirements for a custom built emergency type vehicle. In
order to extend the expected service life of this vehicle, the body module shall be removable from the chassis frame and
be capable of being installed on a new chassis.
The sheet metal material requirements, including alloy and material thickness, throughout the specifications are
considered to be a minimum. Since such materials are available to all Manufacturers, the material specifications shall be
strictly adhered to.
The fabrication of the body shall be formed sheet metal. Formed components shall allow the Edmonton Fire Department
to have the body repaired locally in the case where any object has struck the body and caused damage. The use of
proprietary extrusions will prevent the Edmonton Fire Department from such repair and shall NOT be used.
Following construction of the subframe, which supports the apparatus body, the sheet metal portion of the body shall be
built directly on the subframe. The joining of the subframe and body shall be of a welded integral construction.
The sheet metal fabrication of the body shall be performed using inert gas continuous feed welders only. The entire body
shall be welded construction. The use of pop rivets in any portion of structural construction may allow premature failure of
the body structure. Therefore, pop rivets shall NOT be used in the construction of the structural portions of the body. This
includes side body sheets, inner panels of compartment doors, and any other structural portions of the body.
