Use, Maintenance, and Service Testing of Ground Ladders



Improve safety and effectiveness during fire service operations. Make sure ground ladders meet the 2015 edition of NFPA 1932.

NFPA 1932: Standard on Use, Maintenance, and Service Testing of In-Service Fire Department Ground Ladders specifies requirements for the use, maintenance, inspection, and service testing of in-service fire department ground ladders to ensure safety for fire fighters.

Changes in the 2015 NFPA 1932 provide added confidence in safety:

  • An improved visual inspection checklist clarifies requirements, reducing the risk of oversights that could compromise ladder operation.
  • A new operational test for extension ladders helps ensure there is no damage to the ladder.

Be confident all types of in-service ladders, including multi-purpose ladders, are tested and maintained for fire service duty. (Softbound, 24 pp., 2015)
