To ensure the safety of firefighters across the country, we can help confirm that your in-service fire department ground ladders are compliant with industry standards.

Overview

We examine in-service fire department ground ladders to determine compliance with the current edition of NFPA 1932, The Standard on Use, Maintenance, and Service Testing of In-Service Fire Department Ground Ladders. These inspections are an essential step in helping ensure the utmost safety and security of firefighters. Upon the conclusion of our inspection, we will provide a comprehensive report detailing the results of all items that were inspected and tested.

Our examinations are offered annually and include:

  • Visual examination of the structural welds and components of the ground ladder

  • Roof hook test
  • Ladder hardware test
