NFPA 1937, Standard for the Selection, Care, and Maintenance of Rescue Tools, is seeking public input on its preliminary draft. The preliminary draft allows the public to review and submit any suggested revisions prior to the publication of its First Draft Report.
NFPA 1937 shall specify minimum requirements for the selection, care, maintenance, and record keeping of lifting bags, rescue tools, and struts that are compliant with NFPA 1936. This standard shall not specify requirements for other organizational programs such as the use of lifting bags, rescue tools, or struts for training or operations, because these programs are under the jurisdiction of other NFPA standards.
The deadline for submitting public input for this new standard is January 3, 2019.
