Protective clothing for firefighters - Performance requirements for protective clothing for firefighting activities
This document specifies minimum performance requirements for protective clothing designed to be worn during firefighting activities. The requirements detailed in this document cover design, heat and flame, mechanical, chemical, comfort, and visibility. This document covers the general clothing design, the minimum performance levels of the material used, the methods of test to be used to determine these performance levels, marking and information supplied by the manufacturer. This document makes distinction between firefighting activities dividing them into two performance levels based on a risk assessment: - Level 1: specifies the minimum requirements for firefighting clothing involving work associated with outdoor firefighting and their support activities, taking into account the environments and conditions of the expected operational scenarios of such firefighting activities. The level 1 is not applicable for protection against risks encountered in fighting fires or rescue from fire activities in structures, unless combined to a level 2 or other specialized PPE. - Level 2: s
Protective clothing for fire-fighters - Test methods and requirements for reflective clothing for specialised fire-fighting
This European Standard considers requirements for the protection of the whole body including head, hands and feet. Clothing for head and feet according to this European Standard, however, may only provide sufficient protection when worn together with such basic PPE specified in the relevant standards as noted in paragraphs 4.2 and 4.4 of this European Standard. This European Standard specifies test methods and minimum performance requirements for reflective protective clothing used in specialised fire-fighting. This clothing provides protection against flame lick and intense radiant heat and is worn for short periods only, to enable the fire-fighter to enter specific high-risk fire-fighting and fire rescue situations which also require the use of breathing apparatus. This European Standard only covers protective clothing that relies upon the ability of the outer material to reflect intense radiant heat. This type of reflective clothing may also be used for industrial applications involving high levels of radiant heat. The reflective clothing specified in this European Standard
Hydraulic platforms (HPs) for fire fighting and rescue services - Safety requirements and testing
This European Standard applies to vehicle mounted Hydraulic Platforms (HP's) as defined in 3.1, intended for use by fire and rescue services. HP's may participate in fire fighting, rescue or protection of persons, protection of the environment and in a variety of other technical operations. This document identifies the significant hazards (see Clause 4) for all sizes of HP's used by fire and rescue services, on the basis that they are supplied in a complete form, tested and ready for use. It also gives methods for the elimination or reduction of these hazards. This document applies only to HP's classified in group B ? type 1 according to EN 280:2001, 1.4. NOTE 1 HPs of group B ? type 1 are those where the vertical projection of the centre of gravity of the load may be outside the tipping lines and for which travelling is only allowed with the HP in its travel condition. Consequently this document does not apply to HP's with the following classification according to EN 280:2001, 1.4: - group A - type 1; - group A - type 2; - group A - type 3; - group B - type 2; - group B - typ
Protective gloves for firefighters
This standard defines minimum performance requirements and test methods for firefighters' protective gloves. This standard applies only to firefighters' protective gloves which protect the hands during normal firefighting, including search and rescue. These gloves are not intended for deliberate handling of liquid chemicals, but provide some protection against accidental contact with chemicals. Protective gloves for special operations within firefighting service are excluded from the scope of this standard.
Safety rules for the construction and installation of lifts - Particular applications for passenger and goods passenger lifts - Part 72: Firefighters lifts
1.1 This document specifies the additional or deviating requirements to EN 81-20:2020 for new passenger and goods passenger lifts, which can be used for firefighting and evacuation purposes under firefighters control. 1.2 This document applies, when the following conditions are fulfilled: - the lift well and the lift environment are designed to restrict the ingress of fire, heat and smoke to the lift well, machinery spaces and safe areas; - the building design limits the flow of water into the lift well; - the firefighters lift is not used as an escape route; - the lift well and the lift environment are fire protected for at least to the same level as the building structure; - the power supply is secure and reliable; - the electrical cable(s) providing power to the lift is fire protected to the same fire protection level as given to the lift well structure; - a suitable maintenance and verification plan is implemented. 1.3 This document does not cover: - the use of lifts with partially enclosed wells for use as firefighters lifts; - lifts installed in new or existing buildings
Protective clothing for firefighter's who are engaged in support activities associated with structural fire fighting -- Laboratory test methods and performance
Acest document specifică metodele de încercare şi cerinţele minime de performanţă pentru îmbrăcămintea de protecţie utilizată de pompierii implicaţi în activităţi suport legate de stingerea incendiilor. Această îmbrăcăminte nu este destinată pompierilor implicaţi direct în stingerea incendiilor din interiorul structurilor. Activităţi suport legate de stingerea incendiilor sunt, de exemplu: - furnizarea de apă şi materiale; - stingerea focului din afara structurilor; - prevenirea răspândirii focului în exterior, la structurile adiacente sau în mediu şi limitarea efectelor fumului; - asigurarea securităţii traficului şi mediului înconjurător; - activităi de prim ajutor; - evaluarea zonei; - evacuarea; - activităţi de planificare, logistice, de comunicare şi transport. Standardul precizează aspecte legate de proiectarea generală a îmbrăcămintei, nivelele minime de performanţă ale materialelor utilizate şi metodele de încercare pentru determinarea acestor nivele de performanţă.
Double acting hydraulic rescue tools for fire and rescue service use - Safety and performance requirements
This European Standard specifies safety and performance requirements for double acting hydraulic rescue tools manufactured after the date of publication. It is applicable to double acting hydraulic rescue tool systems which are intended for use by the firefighting and rescue services, principally for cutting through, spreading or pushing apart the structural parts of road vehicles, ships, trains, aircraft and building structures involved in accidents. They consist of a separate power pack, the tool[s] and the necessary interconnections and intended accessories, as defined in Clause 3 – Terms and definitions. This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to the machinery, when it is used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer. NOTE 1 The aim is to assist while extracting the casualties or to create a working space for paramedical services taking the local conditions into account. It is not applicable to additional requirements for: a) operation in severe conditions (e.
Lifting bag systems for fire and rescue service use - Safety and performance requirements
This European Standard specifies requirements for lifting bag systems, where intended operation is inflation by compressed air and used primarily by fire and rescue services. This European Standard applies to lifting bag systems including some or all of the following components: - hose assemblies and couplings; - regulators; - control devices; - pressure indicators; - safety valves; - lifting bags. This European Standard applies to lifting bag systems intended for operation under ambient temperatures between -20 °C and 55 °C.
