1994. Wildland Fire Engine Component Guide. NFES 1871. San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center. 124 p.

This Guide was developed by the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG), Fire Equipment Working Team (FEWT), National Engine Subcommittee. This interagency subcommittee was chartered in 1986 to define and improve the quality of wildland fire engines. The first phase of the effort was the development of performance specifications to provide improved quality truck chassis. The second phase was to develop criteria for component selection. This Guide is the product of the second phase.

The objective of this publication is to assist wildland fire agencies in the selection of quality components for assembly into fire engines. It provides information on characteristics that should be considered to meet a wide range of wildland fire engine user requirements. NWCG also publishes a companion document, the Water Handling Equipment Guide (NFES No. 1275). This provides additional reference information.
