Firefighting and rescue service vehicles - Part 2: Common requirements - Safety and performance

1.1 This European Standard specifies the common requirements for safety and the (minimum) common performance requirements of firefighting and rescue service vehicles as designated in EN 1846-1. NOTE 1 Categories and mass classes of these vehicles are given in EN 1846-1. When drafting this European Standard it has been assumed that the finished standard automotive chassis (or the chassis designed in accordance with the same principles) that is the basis for the firefighting or rescue vehicle, offers an acceptable safety level for its basic transport functions within the limits specified by the manufacturer. Therefore, this European Standard does not formulate requirements for this chassis. This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to firefighting and rescue service vehicles, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). Complementary specific requirements for aerial appliances are the subject of the following European Standards: ? EN
