Apply NFPA 1936 to equip first-responder teams with tools that can save lives. Make victim extrication and rescue operations more successful by providing emergency responders with the proper powered rescue tools.

Adopted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, NFPA 1936: Standard on Powered Rescue Tools establishes criteria for the design, performance, and testing of powered rescue tools and their components that perform spreading, lifting, holding, crushing, pulling, or cutting functions.

The Standard also sets criteria for product conformance verification to assist purchasers in selecting powered rescue tools that are compliant with NFPA 1936. Changes in the 2010 edition include revised document compliance dates and new tool label temperature requirements. (Softbound, 26 pp., 2010)
