Firefighting vehicles have become more and more popular in the last few decades as vehicles have been used in rescue missions, such as in a wildfire, and as part of disaster response.
In some instances, fire trucks are even used to search for people trapped under debris in the aftermath of a disaster.
This has led to some confusion among truckers.
There are currently two different definitions of what constitutes a “firefighting vehicle.”
There is a general definition for a vehicle used to fight fires: “a vehicle that is capable of fighting fires and is capable to extinguish fires in the event of a fire.”
There are also different definitions for a firefighting vehicle: “an aircraft that is a helicopter, a special-purpose vehicle, a ground-attack vehicle, or a special warfare vehicle.
There is no one standard definition for what a fire truck is.”
Some of these vehicles are called firefighting helicopters.
There were only a handful of firefighting vehicles in the US during World War II, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
The US Army Air Corps used about 3,000 of these planes during the war, and they were used to help fight fires in Korea and the Pacific, but they were never used in combat.
“I can’t say that they were the only ones,” said retired firefighter Chris Glynn, who is now a firefighter and author of the book Firefighters: A Journey into the World of Fire.
“But I can tell you that we had a lot of them.”
In a 2013 study, the NFPA found that only about 1% of fire trucks were built for the job of fighting fire.
In comparison, almost 20% of the US Army and Navy vehicles were built to combat wildfires.
In 2015, Congress enacted a law called the Firefighter Safety Act, which was meant to prevent “the firefighting and hazardous material response [to wildfires] from being diverted from the mission to the fire itself.”
The NFPA estimated that more than 50,000 firefighting trucks were in use in the U.S. by 2020.
The act also mandated that a firefighter must be certified as a fire fighter.
But it also mandated the NFAA to establish the definitions for the types of fire fighting vehicles, as well as how they were designed.
“They didn’t have a specific standard that was in place,” said Glynn.
“So they didn’t know what they were saying.
They were going to say, ‘It’s a truck with a fire engine on it, and it’s an aircraft.’
And then they weren’t going to be able to say that.
They didn’t even know what the criteria were.”
There was no way to determine how many firefighting or hazardous material trucks there were in the United States.
In 2017, Congress passed a law known as the Hazardous Materials Safety Improvement Act.
That law mandated the construction of 25 firefighting truck models, along with other vehicles that could be used for the task of fighting wildfires.
However, the DOT has not provided any guidance on how these trucks were to be used, and the agency is not in a position to tell the public what types of vehicles are acceptable.
The agency has not even been able to answer some basic questions about how firefighting systems are supposed to work, including the criteria for which trucks are to be certified.
“You need a lot more clarity on the definition of what firefighting is and how it should be done,” Glynn said.
“It’s just really confusing.”
The DOT has released a series of guidelines for building firefighting firefighting equipment, but the most basic requirement is that the firefighting tool be able “to extinguish flames quickly.”
“I don’t know if that’s what’s in the guidelines,” Glynnsaid.
“We’re still figuring that out.”
The problem is that there is no clear guidance for what constitutes the definition for an “acceptable firefighting apparatus.”
“There’s nothing in the fire safety act that gives you a clear idea of what a vehicle is supposed to be, and how that can be used,” Glin said.
A fire truck with no protective gear can become a fire and toxic waste container.
Glynn’s research suggests that the majority of firefighter vehicles, especially those that are not certified, are not equipped with a flame suppression system.
“There are no firefighting standards for vehicles,” Grynensaid.
But when it comes to a truck that is certified to fight fire, Glynn says that it can make sense for them to have a fire suppression system that can “prevent a fire from spreading and can be operated in an emergency situation.”
This is important because it helps to minimize the risk of a toxic waste spill.
A vehicle that doesn’t have one is a “hazardous material storage vehicle,” which can be “incompatible with life support,” according to Glynn and the NFIA.
“A vehicle that has a fire extinguisher in it can
