rail shall be considered on the following key items: Each rail shall be rated by a Resistance Bending Moment (RBM)
minimum of 3,213,100 inch pounds and have a minimum section modulus of 29.21 cubic inches calculated by the radius
method. The frame shall measure 35.00 inches in width.
RBM refers to the measure of stiffness of a cross section relative to the yield stress of the material the frame is
manufactured from.
Every cross sectional profile of an object has a measure of its mechanical properties based on its shape. These properties
of its shape can be broken down relative to the horizontal and vertical direction, represented as Ixx and Iyy. These act as
a measure of the shapes resistance to bending.
The section modulus of mass of this profile takes into consideration the stresses imposed on this profile when a load is
applied, by considering the maximum distance from the center of the profile to its outer most extremity. Section modulus
is a method of measurement for the relative stiffness of a beam section and is based on the horizontal and vertical
directional value plus the distance from the center of mass to the extremities of the cross section from the coordinate axis,
such that Zyy = Iyy/Y and Zxx = Ixx/X.
A minimum of seven (7) fully gusseted 0.25 inch thick cross members shall be installed. The inclusion of the engine
mounting, body mounting, pump mounting or bumpers shall not be considered as a cross member. The cross members
shall be attached using grade 8 flanged head bolts and flanged lock nuts. Each cross member shall be mounted to the

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 Customer 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 Customer 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.

WARNING LIGHT PACKAGE
Each apparatus shall have a system of optical warning devices that meets or exceeds the requirements of this section.
The optical warning system shall consist of an upper and a lower warning level. The requirements for each level shall be
met by the warning devices in that particular level without consideration of the warning devices in the other level.
For the purposes of defining and measuring the required optical performance, the upper and lower warning levels shall be
divided into four warning zones. The four zones shall be determined by lines drawn through the geometric center of the
apparatus at 45 degrees to a line drawn lengthwise through the geometric center of the apparatus. The four zones shall
be designated A, B, C, and D in a clockwise direction, with zone A to the front of the apparatus.
Each optical warning device shall be installed on the apparatus and connected to the apparatus’s electrical system in
accordance with the requirements of this standard and the requirements of the manufacturer of the device.
A master optical warning system switch that energizes all the optical warning devices shall be provided.
The optical warning system on the fire apparatus shall be capable of two separate signaling modes during emergency
operations. One mode shall signal to drivers and pedestrians that the apparatus is responding to an emergency and is
calling for the right-of-way. One mode shall signal that the apparatus is stopped and is blocking the right-of-way. The use
of some or all of the same warning lights shall be permitted for both modes provided the other requirements of this
chapter are met.
A switching system shall be provided that senses the position of the parking brake or the park position of an automatic
transmission. When the master optical warning system switch is closed and the parking brake is released or the automatic
transmission is not in park, the warning devices signaling the call for the right-of-way shall be energized. When the master
optical warning system switch is closed and the parking brake is on or the automatic transmission is in park, the warning
devices signaling the blockage of the right-of-way shall be energized. The system shall be permitted to have a method of
modifying the two signaling modes.
The optical warning devices shall be constructed or arranged so as to avoid the projection of light, either directly or
through mirrors, into any driving or crew compartment(s). The front optical warning devices shall be placed so as to
maintain the maximum possible separation from the headlights.
UPPER LEVEL OPTICAL WARNING DEVICES
The upper-level optical warning devices shall be mounted as high and as close to the corner points of the apparatus as is
practical to define the clearance lines of the apparatus. The upper-level optical warning devices shall not be mounted
above the maximum height, specified by the device manufacturer.
