An excerpt from The Safety Concepts

As most firefighters know, equipment used for incident operations requires a dedicated care and maintenance program. Following an injury accident, much time is spent evaluating the performance of involved equipment. Often, the piece of equipment is found to be inappropriate for the application or not operationally sound.

Because many firefighters may use and maintain a piece of equipment, the complete documentation of repairs and maintenance is essential. Further, a complete set of guidelines should be developed or adopted for essential equipment. Rich Duffy, Director of Occupational Health and Safety for the International Association of Firefighters (I A F F), and Chuck Soros, retired Chief of Safety for Seattle, Washington, suggest considering seven items when writing equipment guidelines:

  1. Selection
  2. Use
  3. Cleaning and decontamination
  4. Storage
  5. Inspection
  6. Repairs
  7. Criteria for retirement
