To safeguard fire fighter entry during response operations, ground ladders must adhere to NFPA 1931.

NFPA 1931: Standard for Manufacturer's Design of Fire Department Ground Ladders provides manufacturers of fire department ground ladders with a set of performance requirements against which new ladders are certified. It specifies the requirements and the design verification testing required for new ground ladders intended for use by fire department personnel for rescue and fire-fighting operations as well as for training.
