Specifications and Standards

Hose Clamp Retrofit

Project Leader: Sam Wu
Deliverables: Maintenance of specifications and standards, first article testing

Project Description:

The Specifications and Standards Program is an on-going program supporting wildland fire equipment. The continuous updating of these documents ensure the procurement of the most current and economical equipment needed by the field. As technology advances and newer products are introduced to the commercial market, the specifications and standards are kept current to stay abreast with these changes. Revisions and amendments to these specifications and standards incorporate new technology, design changes, requirements, and test procedures. Specifications revised every five years and introduction of new technology is defined by the product lifecycle program.

Specifications and standards developed and maintained under this project directly support annual procurement of an estimated 30 million dollars worth of fire equipment and chemicals. SDTDC is responsible for approximately 31 specifications and standards that span from water handling equipment to helicopter accessories. Issue revisions and amendments to specifications/standards incorporating new technology, design changes, requirements, and test procedures. Coordinate the specification program with user agencies (i.e., Forest Service, General Services Administration (GSA) and others. Work with field users and GSA on contract administration and quality assurance. Assist, where directed, with preparation and support of the annual GSA/Interagency Wildfire Suppression Equipment Conference. This is a long standing project at SDTDC.

Project Activity Summary:

Participated in the Wildfire Suppression Equipment Conference in November 2004 (Albuquerque). SDTDC Fire Program Leader moderated Workshop A. A standard sprinkler kit has been developed and will be field tested during the 2005 fire season. The SDTDC Qualified Products List (QPL) program is currently being modified. All QPLs, except fire pumps, are being eliminated. Specifications for the eliminated QPLs items are being converted from a QPL specification to a First Article specification.
