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 Inter-Canyon 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 Inter-Canyon 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.

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
