1.1 This document 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 document, 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 document does not formulate requirements for this chassis. This document 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. Complementary specific requirements for aerial appliances are the subject of the following European Standards: - EN 1777: Hydraulic platforms (HPs) for firefighting and rescue services, - EN 14043: Turntable ladders with combined movements, - EN 14044: Turntable ladders with sequential movements. These specific requirements can supplement or modify the requirements of this document and they take precedence over the corresponding requirements of this document. NOTE 2 Additional regulations, not dealt with in this document, can apply in relation with the use of the vehicles on public roads. This document deals with firefighting and rescue vehicles intended for use in a temperature range from -15 °C to +40 °C. NOTE 3 In the case of utilization outside this temperature range, additional measures might be necessary as agreed between the manufacturer and the user. Such requirements are outside the scope of this document. 1.2 This document does not deal with the following types of firefighting or rescue vehicles or equipment: - vehicles designed exclusively for carrying personnel; - vehicles with a gross laden mass not exceeding 3 t; - boats; - aircraft; - railway vehicles; - ambulances (see EN 1789); - provisions for non-firefighting removable equipment driven by PTO; - airport vehicles in the scope of the recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). 1.3 This document deals with the technical requirements to minimize the hazards listed in Annex K which can arise during operational use, routine checking and maintenance of firefighting and rescue service vehicles when carried out in accordance with the specifications given by the manufacturer or his authorized representative. It does not cover the hazards generated by: - non-permanently installed equipment i.e. portable equipment carried on the vehicle; - use in potentially explosive atmospheres; - commissioning and decommissioning; - electromagnetic compatibility. Additional measures not dealt with in this document might be necessary for specific use (e.g. fire in natural environment, flooding, etc.). 1.4 This document is not applicable to machines that are manufactured before its date of publication as a European Standard.

This document specifies the evaluation of the firefighting performance of water mist systems for false ceilings and false floors with heights between 300 mm and 800 mm. This fire test protocol is applicable to pendent or upright automatic nozzles to be used in unlimited volume. This document is applicable for horizontal, solid, flat ceilings. It is not possible to apply these tests to other applications than the ones specified within this fire test protocol. In case of a positive result of the tests, the water mist system can be applied for the protection of the following risks: False ceilings and false floors between 300 mm and 800 mm.

This document specifies fire testing requirements for water mist systems used for fire protection of domestic and residential occupancies up to a maximum ceiling height of 5,5 m. EXAMPLE Examples for residential occupancies are family dwelling/house, bed and breakfast, apartment buildings, blocks of flats, care homes, small hotels or hostels, and residential areas in hotel bedrooms and guest corridors. NOTE Some countries might have a national annex with guidance on the maximum height of the building, minimum design area and any additional requirements.

This document specifies requirements for fire detection, alarm systems, equipment shutdown, information and communication systems, emergency lighting, emergency brake systems and fire fighting systems to cover the objectives defined in EN 45545-1:2013. The measures and requirements specified in this document aim to protect passengers and staff in railway vehicles in the event of a fire on board by alerting staff and passengers to a fire, delaying the fire development and controlling the movement of smoke. It is not within the scope of this document to describe measures that ensure the preservation of the railway vehicles in the event of a fire. This part is valid for railway vehicles defined in EN 45545-1:2013.
