Fire Engine Maintenance: Equipped Fire Engine Weight (GVW) Mobile App
Each engine will have an annually certified weight slip in the vehicle at all times.
How does it work?
Operators of engines and water tenders must ensure that the maximum certified GVWR is never exceeded. The maximum weight of the engine includes gear, crew personnel, and fuel. If a crew member is unavailable during the weighing, then the NFPA 1906 standard of 250 pounds for each person and their personal gear will be used to calculate the loaded weight. Use the Fire Engine Maintenance: Equipped Fire Engine Weight (GVW) mobile app to document the annually certified weight. The information below can also be used for transport (low-boy) operations, towing operations, and accident investigations. You can set up unique numbering for each GoCanvas App you have in your account.
