NFPA 1002 requires driver, operators to be able to perform tests, inspections, and servicing to these systems batteries, braking system, coolant system, electrical system, fuel system, hydraulic fluids, oil, tires, steering system, belts, tools & appliances and equipment
When approaching a vehicle to be inspected, what should driver/operators observe? problem that may be readily apparent from a distance,body damage or a severe lean to one side, the terrain on which the vehicle is parking, fluid leaks, such as water, collant, oil, hydraulic fluid, or transmission fluid
Why is inspection of apparatus easier if the apparatus is clean? A clean engine permits proper inspection of leaks and their source, dirty hoses and wires may be frayed or cracked
What should systematic maintenance procedures specify Maintenance procedures, when they are performed, and who is responsible for conducting the maintenance
Why should fire pumps be tested at regularly scheduled intervals? To compare actual performance to specific standards
Post-Maintenance/Repair Inspection- a specific inspection to an area of a chassis or apparatus to ensure that the unit is operating properly in accordance with the manufacturer’s initial design
Diesel Particulate Filter DPF
a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine Diesel Particulate Filter
a braking system that uses a fluid in a closed system to pressurize wheel cylinders when activated Hydraulic Braking Systems
an electronic system that monitors wheel spin. When braking and a wheel are sensed to begin locking up, the brake on the wheel is temporarily released to prevent skidding Antilock Braking System
a braking system that uses compressed air to hold off a spring brake and applies air pressure to a service brake for vehicle stopping Air-Actuated Braking System
devices used in an air brake system that connect between the activation pads and the brake pads that compensate for brake pad wear Slack Adjusters
a series of tests used to ensure the serviceability of an air braking system. Tests include air loss, air compressor buildup, air warning, and emergency parking brake activation Air Brake Test
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating GVWR
a truck that uses a cab that lowers over the power train Tilt Cab
an electrical monitoring system that will shed electrical load in a predetermined order if the chassis voltage begins to drop below a predetermined level Load Management System
operation of equipment or a conductor more than its rated ampacity; continuous overload may result in overheating that damages the equipment Overload
device in an electrical system that turns lights on at a specified interval, so that the start up load for all the devices does not occur at the same time Load Sequencer
device that “watches” an electrical system for added loads that may threaten to overload the system Load Monitor
when an overload condition occurs, the load monitor will shut down less important electrical equipment to prevent the overload Load Shedding
a component of the power train that receives torque from the engine and converts it to rotation to the wheels Manual Shift Transmission
amount of travel the clutch has before it begins to disengage the engine from the transmission Free Play
the component used to push on the internal clutch fingers connected to the clutch pedal and when activated, disengages the clutch from the engine Throw-Out Bearing
in a steering system, the amount of travel between turning the wheel and when the steering system moves Steering Wheel Play
